Passport to History Weekend
August is Passport to History Month – a celebration of local history, stories, and the community that bring Lehigh Valley history to life.
Each weekend, participating historic and cultural sites will open their doors to the public with tours, activities, and programs for visitors of all ages.
Sigal Museum will be offering free admission to the museum on Saturday, August 7 (10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.) and Sunday, August 8 (12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.)
On Saturday, Sigal Museum wil host thei popular “Sidewalk Series Kids Crafts” from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in conjunction with the Easton Farmers’ Market. After you finish browsing all the local farm goodness, stop by Sigal Museum for a demonstration of a historical skill and pick up a kids’ “Take and Make” crafting activity. It’s Peach Day at the Market, so we’ll be doing a whittling demonstration (Have you seen historical peach pit carvings?) and giving kids instructions and supplies to “carve” a soap figure at home.
Families can also play their way through the galleries with Discovery Backpacks filled with activities, a museum Scavenger Hunter, and a Dollhouse “I Spy” game.
Visit the Passport to History website or Facebook page for maps, itineraries, and activities.
