A Night with the Redcoats – January 19, 2013
Have your kids ever slept over at a museum? It’s one of those indelible experiences that childhood in a big city allows. In conjunction with the Creating the United States exhibit, the Skirball is throwing a colonial sleepover party this Saturday night, January 19. Kids will have a chance to explore the lives of the Revolutionary War soldiers through storytelling, and a plethora of unique craft experiences with colonial artisans on-hand. They can also get to know historical re-enactors at a Revolutionary War tent campground behind the museum. A Night with the Redcoats is a night that your kids won’t soon forget! Tickets are $65 for each participant and the adventure includes both dinner and breakfast. Recommended for ages 6 and up (accompanied by adult!).

With Daniel Day Lewis’ performance as Lincoln on everyone’s minds, we urge everyone to head up to the Skirball’s Creating the United States exhibit, which showcases an incredible array of documents from the early days of our Union. You can hear the Skirball’s Museum Director, Dr. Bob Kirschner, speak about the show (and his efforts to bring these rare artifacts to the West Coast) at a docent-tour on Wednesday, January 23 at 1:00 PM.
