The Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library and Museum is pleased to host its annual Victorian Valentine’s Day Celebration and Tea Saturday February 1 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Wilson Library. Join the museum educators as they celebrate Valentine’s Day much in the same way the Woodrow Wilson’s would have. Enjoy a traditional taffy pull, create a marbleized autograph book, delight in lighthearted love stories as told by local storytellers and conclude with a delicious three course tea. The Tea is suggested, but not limited to, children six to twelve years of age. Should it snow the Valentine Tea will be held Saturday February 8th. The cost to participate is $25.00 per child.
This event is one of the WWPL’s educational programs for children. The Presidential Library regularly hosts area students for interactive programs that meet Virginia Standards of Learning requirements. In the “Journey into History” program, the “President, Professor, Peacemaker” program, and the “Great War” program, students tour President Wilson’s birthplace and participate in group activities in the Woodrow Wilson Museum. The WWPL also takes outreach programs to schools and hosts a summer “Journey into History” camp, a five day interactive history camp with different historical themes each summer.
Those interested in registering or obtaining more information about the event should contact the Museum Educator at the Presidential Library,(540) 885-0897, ext 110, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org Space in the event is limited. Registration is now open, and forms are available on-line or for pick-up at the museum front desk.
