April School Vacation Week this year is all about celebrating our latest special exhibition, Thomas Jefferson: The Private Man, from the Collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society!

Museum-Wide Scavenger Hunt
All Day

Families will hunt high and low throughout the Museum to find captivating objects that shed light on the life and times of Thomas Jefferson.  Along the way, they’ll learn fun facts about this intriguing Founding Father who wrote the Declaration of Independence, served as the first U.S. Secretary of State, made the Louisiana Purchase, founded the University of Virginia, holds the distinction of being the third president of the United States, and so much more!

Drop-in Crafts
Daily, 1-3 pm

Thomas Jefferson was known for being a distinguished man of letters who loved books and owned an impressive library. To celebrate this cerebral gentleman, families will be invited to emboss their very own “leather” bookmarks to take home.
