Sunday, October 9th, 12:00pm - 3:00pm | Jefferson Garden

Join us on Sunday, October 9th for the APS Museum’s Annual Garden Party! The Garden Party is a free program. It will take place from 12:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m. in our Jefferson Garden, located at 105 South 5th Street.  

Engage in a variety of activities as we welcome the fall weather and celebrate the last few months of the Becoming Weatherwise exhibition. Hands-on activities for the whole family brought to you by Wyck Historic House, Independence National Historical Park, and the American Philosophical Society.

Be prepared to celebrate the beginning of fall with games and crafts (and some candy, too)!

This free afternoon event is appropriate for children and guests of all ages. The exhibition Becoming Weatherwise: A History of Climate Science in America, located across the street in Philosophical Hall, will be open throughout the program.
