One History Place

Tea party

Note: One History Place is temporarily closed for renovations and will reopen later in 2017.

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.

  • Dip into a trunk of turn-of-the-century clothes and play “dress up” in the attic.
  • Pump water, churn butter, and scrub clothes in the old-fashioned kitchen.
  • Play the piano.
  • Have a tea party in the parlor.
  • Entertain guests in the living room or read books by the fireplace.
  • Pretend to travel across the country at the train station.

One History Place is produced by The Strong.
