Join us for family programs that explore the Vietnam era all weekend long in honor of our groundbreaking exhibition The Vietnam War: 1945 – 1975. Enhance your visit every afternoon with a stop at our 'touch table' of historical objects that you (yes, you!) can handle with the help of an educator. Use a mix of original or reproduction items to experience a part of life on the home or war front by investigating Life magazines, decoding numbers on draft cards, and unpacking a soldier’s rucksack. 

Please contact familyprograms@nyhistory.org for more information and pricing.
