Winter Break History Week
Winter History Week
February 19-22, 2019
9am-3pm* (For kids ages 8-12)

Travel back in time this winter, and experience life in 19th-century New York City!
Adventure awaits each day-- filled with hands-on activities, crafts, and games!

Our building was constructed in 1799 as a carriage house and converted into a day hotel in 1826.   The Mount Vernon Hotel Museum & Garden celebrates 19th-century life and transports our Winter History Week  visitors back to  life in the early days of the city  as lived by people who visited or worked at the hotel and nearby.


Sign up for one day or all four:

Tuesday, February 19  Follow Mr. Rikers, music store owner, as he admires the musical instruments at the Mount Vernon Hotel. Hear what they sounded like, and design and play your very own harp!
Wednesday, February 20  Accompany Mr. and Mrs. Stuart, travelers from Scotland, on their visit to New York City and the Mount Vernon Hotel. Help them navigate New York with a city directory and collaborate with others to make your own mini 1829 guide book!
Thursday, February 21  Meet J. C. Hart, owner of the Hotel, and learn what planets Mr. Hart knew about when he built his solar system model. Then, build one yourself!
Friday, February 22  Join the children of the proprietor as they learn from hotel cook, Flora Miller, planting herbs in the winter and making a period recipe!
Snacks included! Bring your own lunch!
