Family Field Trip at Eastern State Penitentiary
August 14 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
On the second Sunday of every month at 11:30 am, join Eastern State’s education team for a journey through the history of creativity at the penitentiary. Explore an exclusive, behind-the-scenes space and participate in a fun, hands-on craft or activity. Past themes include “Food,” “Music, Creativity, and Protest,” and “Religion and Faith.” For more information on this month’s theme and activity, visit www.EasternState.org/events.
Family Field Trips are open to all, but are designed with children ages 8-13 and their caregivers in mind. This program lasts 45 minutes. Family Field Trips are included with standard admission to the historic site, subject to availability. Daytime tour tickets can be purchased online in advance (www.EasternState.org) or at the door. Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start time, and ask a staff member to direct you to the meeting point.
