Fun For Kids



Visiting the Museums with Children

Play dress-up with the kids in authentic Loyalist garb. Tend our heritage garden with the kids, dig in the sandbox, touch and play with certain museum artifacts, and picnic in our green spaces.


We're so kid-friendly, we have the historic district's only change table.
