This special programming is ongoing during these hours and is part of your museum ticket.
In 1916, Caroline Emmerton’s Settlement House served the immigrant families living in the neighborhood of the museum. The children often attended classes that taught household and industrial skills like cooking, woodworking, sewing and gardening. They and other family members also joined theatrical, musical, and athletic clubs offered through Emmerton’s charity.
Come join us for our Living History Labs, featuring hands-on activities based off these Settlement House programs of the early-20th century. Play both scientist and historian in ‘lab experiments’ where you practice your sewing, work on your paper folding skills or play 1916 games.
Registration is not required.
Salem residents are always free at The House of the Seven Gables with proof of residency.
