K&Q Museum offers a glimpse of life ‘back in the day’

Looking for a fun activity for the whole family?

Bring your kids to the King and Queen Courthouse Tavern Museum and experience a time before electricity, phones, the internet, and motorized vehicles.

The museum is hosting an interactive open house on Saturday, July 20, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

There will be stations where visitors can imagine they are students in a one-room schoolhouse, hand wash and dry clothes, watch how thread is made on a spinning wheel, make butter and more. Take a cell phone selfie while you pretend to talk on an old telephone or stamp a hand-written letter from the old post office. Hunt for sharks’ teeth and learn about prehistoric residents from the Fossil Man.

The event is free. Light refreshments will be available. The King and Queen Tavern Museum is located at 146 Courthouse Landing Road, King and Queen. The museum is regularly open on Fridays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. through the first week in December, or by appointment. For more information,...
