Looking for something free, educational, and fun for your children/grandchildren to do this summer? Come join us for “Hands On History” at the Lexington County Museum! This program will take place on July 19th and will focus on our “Historical Pastimes” program. This program will take place in our air-conditioned Hazelius House (aka our tour office). Children will get to handle replica toys and learn about early games, stories, and songs from the 1700s and 1800s. Children will learn how children of the past enjoyed their leisure time.
