Los Alamos History Museum Launches History At Home Activities



The Los Alamos History Museum buildings are closed, but there’s now a way to bring the museum into your own home. The museum’s new History at Home page has hands-on history activities for learners of all ages, and is available at http://www.losalamoshistory.org/historyathome.

These activities include three fun long-term projects, and the History Museum is running a contest for them now through April 15th. Complete any of these long-term projects and share it on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #LosAlamosHistory to enter. The museum will award five winners a $25 gift certificate to the Los Alamos History Museum Shop.

History at Home activities are ideas that get you engaged with local history. Practice being the historian or museum curator yourself as you document, tour, write, taste, and create history. Connect with the community and people around you with prompts that lead to reflection on history, from global events to family stories.

The Los Alamos Historical Society preserves, promotes, and communicates the remarkable history and inspiring stories of Los Alamos and its people for our community, for the global audience, and for future generations.
