Join Curatorial Director John Leysath for 'Arms and Armor,' a presentation on the history and engineering of medieval European armaments.

On display will be a number of helmets and other armor pieces, as well as weaponry from the medieval to the Renaissance periods.

This hour-long presentation will cover the evolution of armor and weapons throughout the Middle Ages as well as the science behind their construction and use.

There will also be a discussion about the career paths of both knights and blacksmiths, and a demonstration of how their equipment was cleaned and maintained.

At the conclusion of the program there will be a short question and answer session.

This program is geared towards kids ages 10 and up.
