Education

 Education takes many forms at the Heritage Museums and Gardens of Dorchester.  School groups from Dorchester are hosted each year and enjoy a hands-on approach to learning history. 

The youngest children can successfully “churn” butter and eat their product, too!  Other activities include doing laundry with a washboard, grinding corn by hand, making crafts in the herb garden and more.  Costumes intensify the experience for youngsters.
