90 Minutes children’s special tour.

The interests of the Peale family painters expanded beyond the canvas and out into the natural world. Patriarch Charles Willson Peale inspired a love of science in his youngest son, Titian, when he established his natural history museum. Titian Peale became a noted naturalist and botanical artist. In this hands-on program participants will learn what herbs were cultivated in 18th and 19th century Maryland and how they were used for cooking and medicine.  The program features a scavenger hunt and tour of the museum. Children will  make their own botanical drawing.
