The Old Colony History Museum returns to teach us how to make a historic STEAM toy, called a thaumatrope. A thaumatrope is an optical toy that was popular in the 19th century.

We will see how people throughout history learn about their world through toys and play with this hands-on activity.

This program is suitable for children, families and adults – anyone interested in history! 

This program is made possible through CARES Act funding to Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
