Family Craft Day
Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum invites families with children ages 5-13 to participate in a special in-gallery art activity on Saturday, November 3. Children, with guidance from parents or guardians, will create their very own Civil War forage hat, or “Kepi”, with felt. Both Union and Confederate soldiers wore Kepis during the Civil War. This activity is great for including children in the experience presented in the gallery for the museum’s exhibition “Making America: The Irish in the Civil War Era.”
This activity is free with museum admission ($5 adults, free for children) and does not require registration.
