New York Family Life Then & Now
Students explore the nineteenth century and make comparisons and connections to their own modern-day lives while touring the Greek Revival mansion and carriage house. Museum educators lead discussions about the lives of the Bartow family and aspects of nineteenth-century culture, including technology, labor, immigration, and transportation.

Module 1: Toys & Games, K-3
Students have the opportunity to partake in typical games of the time period, play with popular toys, and take home their own nineteenth-century ‘board game’!
Module 2: Unlock the Past, 4+
Help Augustus Moore, tutor to the Bartows, unlock his secret box! Through analysis of primary sources, students will work together in groups to solve puzzles and codes and open a locked box with a hidden prize inside.
