Knights & Ladies Day: The History of Heraldry at Hammond Castle Museum
April 20 @ 11:00 am
One event on April 20, 2022 at 1:00 pm
Bring your little Knights and Ladies to the Hammond Castle Museum for an educational and hands-on introduction to the history of heraldry on Knights and Ladies Day! This hour-long program on April 20, is geared towards 7–11-year-olds and will be held in the Great Hall of the Museum, where their imagination can run wild, just as John Hays Hammond Jr., the inventor who built the Castle intended.
After a short introduction to heraldry from the Museum curator, your little aristocrats will get the chance to design their very own coat of arms on a shield using symbols and colors that represent each of them individually. Following that will be a chance for little ones to learn about, see firsthand-and touch-actual chain mail armor, cloth arming caps, and even a wooden training sword!
Tickets are $10 per adult and $15 per child. The Museum asks that only one adult accompany each group of children.
Tickets reservations are required in advance for the 11 am or 1 pm session and are available at www.hammondcastle.org.
