Nantucket Historical Association to hold Summer Craft Program



NANTUCKET – Families and visitors on Nantucket looking for something for kids to do this summer can check out a summer program at the Whaling Museum.

The Nantucket Historical Association invites children and their guardians to Hands-On History, a program full of crafts and activities that is offered daily in July and August from 1:30 to 4:30 in the museum’s Discovery Room.

The program offers children and family members the opportunity to create crafts inspired by artifacts in the association’s collection.

Each craft is designed to encourage visitors to visit the Whaling Museum and discover the historical significance of the items that Nantucketers brought home from their whaling trips.

Each day of the week offers different crafts including whale mobiles and whirligigs on Mondays, arrowheads and coral necklaces on Tuesdays, scrimshaw on Wednesdays, tea cups and dancing masks on Thursdays, lighthouses and signal flags on Fridays, sailors valentines on Saturdays and whaleboats and whale stamps on Sundays.

Hands-On Hisotry is free for association members and free with regular museum admission.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.
