Children will go back in time to 1874 when the very first 10-story skyscraper was constructed. After comparing skyscrapers of today with the buildings of the museum’s new exhibition, TEN AND TALLER, time traveling visitors will choose their favorite skyscraper and attempt to reconstruct it with different building materials. Once completed the buildings will then be placed on a drawn New York City grid learning about the skyscrapers of old New York. Ages 5+. RSVP required.
All workshops are located at The Skyscraper Museum at 39 Battery Place. Registration is requested by Friday at 5 PM. To sign up for the Family Program newsletter, or for more information and to RSVP, email education[at]skyscraper[dot]org or call 212-945-6324.
*Cost is $5 per child; members free.
