At the Museum of Darien, kids and families are treated to “Hands-On History Fun” and connected to the town’s past through school field trips, hands-on activities and yearly celebrations.
On any given day, visitors might encounter volunteers donning colonial garb for a school field trip, librarians from Darien Library huddling with youngsters for Spooky Stories, high school students conducting tours of the old homestead, or kids churning fresh butter during one of our special events.
In light of Darien’s Bicentennial celebration, a Darien eYearbook is in the works at the Museum of Darien. To reflect that the Museum provides a living archive of the town, we are collecting pictures, videos, and stories to add to Darien’s story.
Elementary School Students
The town’s third graders are treated to an annual field trip, designed in partnership with the Board of Education, for a day filled with hands-on learning. In the fifth grade, students jump on a bus with our Education Volunteers for a whirlwind tour of the Darien’s historic sites. We also offer birthday parties, crafting events and story times with the Darien Library.
History Kids of Darien
Youths are invited to join the Youth Docent Program, where they learn how to conduct tours of the Bates Scofield Homestead.
