Farm Animals
ferry farm
august 15

10:15-11:15 am

Join us at Ferry Farm for a fun-filled morning learning about farm animals! We will have story time, learn about some animals that may have lived at Ferry Farm, and make an animal-themed craft to take home! Following the program, children and their caregivers are invited to take an abbreviated tour through the Washington House or explore the Ferry Farm grounds and gallery.

The Mini-Mornings program series introduces young learners (ages 3-6) to our museum spaces. Children and their caregivers participate in a story time and related craft or activity while exploring George Washington’s Ferry Farm or Historic Kenmore.

Free for children with adult admission.  Note: all children participating in the activity also must be registered to ensure an accurate headcount.

$12 per adult
(Children free)
