Come in out of the cold and explore how they built houses in Colonial Massachusetts at The House of the Seven Gables.  What worked best?  What failed? How did they learn from their mistakes?

Put on your thinking cap and your hard hat as you…

  • Learn about the tools of the trade and which materials they used most.
  • Experiment with different construction techniques at each of our hands-on stations using popular building toys.
  • Fold and decorate your own paper house to take home.

This special programming is part of your museum ticket, which includes guided tours of The House of the Seven Gables and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s Birthplace and self-exploration of our Kid’s Cove maritime history area. For more information visit www.7Gables.org/visit. Registration is not required.

Students ages 5 to 12, $9; Students 13 to 18, $11; College Student (with ID) and Seniors (65+): $13; Adults: $14.
