Grandparents Day at the Davis Mansion - September 9, 2018
Noon - 5:00 p.m..
Special activities included with standard admission: $10/adult, $5/child 6-12, Children 5 and under Free

Looking for something to do with your family on Grandparents Day, Sunday, September 9th? Look no further than Morven Park for a fun, family activity included in the price of admission. Before or after your tour of the Davis Mansion, work as a team to explore the tenants of architecture and building materials used in the mansion by reconstructing your ideal log cabin and a cardboard ‘brick’ house. Then put your design to the test- can it withstand a collision with a speeding toy car or a dodgeball? This activity, set up in both the Davis Mansion and the Winmill Carriage Museum, is sure to please the young and the young at heart. We hope to see you out at the Park!
