One History Place

Tea party
Kitchen
Schoolhouse

In the One History Place exhibit at The Strong museum, children and families can step into the past and experience a glimpse of life as it was a century ago. Amid artifacts and reproductions, guests explore mini-environments and go hands-on with activities reminiscent of an era of days gone by.

  • Role-play as a teacher or student in a 19th-century, one-room schoolhouse.
  • Delight in a game of “dress up” with turn-of-the-century clothes in the attic.
  • Pump water, churn butter, and invite guests to a tea party in the old-fashioned kitchen.
  • Play a tune on the piano in the parlor.
  • Explore the steam engine compartment and coal shoot on the mail train.

One History Place is produced by The Strong.
