Kids at the National Museum of American History

Things to do in the Museum

Visit our hands-on spaces on the first floor west wing: Object Project, Wegmans Wonderplace (ages 0-6), and Spark!Lab (ages 6-12) - note that both Wonderplace and Spark!Lab are closed on Tuesdays. Look for hands-on carts, see the The Star-Spangled Banner exhibition and its interactive table, and don’t miss America on the Move.

Things to do at Home

Many of the Museum’s exhibitions are also online. Most of them have special activities to do at home that you can’t find in the Museum.
