Tenement Museum This was our last day with Carolina Homeschoolers. We started our morning at the Tenement Museum. We had walking tour of the East Side.  The guide did a great job incorporating photos to show what the area looked like at what time and what life would have been like.  It was a a hour tour and very  informative. We then did a short  program where the kids got to identify artifacts. The last activity was  a tour of two tenements  and hearing the story of two families that lived their.  One was a family from 1880 and the other 1920. It was great to compare the two homes. We then walked to Katz’s Deli. It was a fun place and they were fast.

We had free time that afternoon and the kids picked the American Museum of Natural History. The place is huge and we only had two hours. We decided to do the National Treasure Tour. We found all the exhibits from the movie which were throughout the exhibit. Cobey and I  really liked Margaret Mead Hall of Pacific People.  I would love a guided tour of that area.  After this museum was when Cobey decided we had to come back. There is so much more to see and learn there. We can’t wait to go back!
