KENMORE’S
HANDS-ON HISTORY LAB

Kenmore’s Hands-On-History Lab is a highly interactive look at the lives of colonial children. A partnership between Kenmore and the 4th grade at Fredericksburg Academy, this special exhibit was created by children for children.

If your children would like to visit the lab, an interpreter from the Visitor Center will accompany you and your children to provide access.

A lab visit is included with regular admission at Kenmore.
