Time travel to a free, turn-of-the-century World’s Fair at the DAR Museum
Experience the excitement, innovation, and wonder of a c.1900 World’s Fair. Do you know what foods debuted at the Columbian Exposition? Or what games children played? Learn about the inventions that thrilled fairgoers and sample the popular foods. Celebrate cultures around the world by exploring the booths of local embassies and cultural centers. Fun for children and adults alike, this event is not one to miss!
For instance, the stereoscope — which was among the tech on display at the Chicago fair — presented viewers with two photos at slightly different angles in order to create an illusion of depth, presaging 3-D movies.
The event will include:
- Tastings of foods debuted at World’s Fairs
- Craft activities for all ages
- Live musical performances
- “National Pavilions” organized by international cultural centers and embassies
- A museum scavenger hunt
- 19th century games
Girl Scout Brownies and Juniors also have the option to earn a badge by attending this event! $10 fee for participating Girl Scouts. More information available on Eventbrite.
