Best for ages 3 and up (a helper who can read will be handy).

Our Tic-Tack-Toe game is an intriguing way to discover what witnesses and participants said about the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Rounding out our activities, we will have two interactive pop-ups: a map where kids can place a waymarker to show how far they’ve come to visit; as well as a collaborative art project to color in a mural for Black History Month.
