The Doak House Museum on the campus of Tusculum College will host a home school enrichment program on Wednesday, March 2.
Home school students and teachers are invited to participate in the museum’s educational and fun program, Toys and Games of the 19th century.
Students will participate in engaging activities at four different stations and learn about the life and times of the Doak family children in the 1800s while playing with the toys they knew and loved such as Jacob’s ladder, hooey sticks, dolls, pick-up sticks, blocks, nine pins, tops, marbles and moon winders.
The program will begin at 10 a.m. Due to inclement weather and program cancellations in December, the museum is offering a discounted rate of $4 per child. One parent or chaperone per group will be admitted free of charge. Space is limited, so reservations are required. Please contact Dollie Boyd at 423.636.8554 or e-mail email@example.com to make reservations.
The Doak House Museum and the President Andrew Johnson Museum and Library are operated by the Department of Museum Program and Studies of Tusculum College. In addition to the museums, the department is responsible for the College Archives and offers one of the few undergraduate Museum Studies degree programs in the country. The two museums are also part of the National Historic District on the Tusculum College campus.
