Have you ever wondered what it was like to live in a log house? Bring the family down to the Mercer Museum for a live, in-person educational program where the whole family can explore the daily life of colonial farmers. Learn about the well pump, colonial games and toys, churning butter, and more!

Each 45-minute session is reserved for a private family group with up to 6 people. All guests 3 and older are required to wear face coverings during the program. This program is partially held outdoors and is hosted in an authentic Colonial-Era Log House that is not climate controlled. Please dress appropriately.
