LAHM News:
Is your child looking for something to do after elementary school classes get out early on Wednesdays?
The Los Alamos History Museum will be continuing History Wednesdays, a free after-school program for students in 1st–3rd grade this fall. Registration is open now and will close on September 9. 

History Wednesdays is a drop-off program in which children will experience engaging, hands-on history activities under the guidance of the Museum Educator.

The program will run from 1-3 p.m., Wednesday afternoons, Sept. 14 through Nov. 16, and meets in the classroom space in Fuller Lodge.

Children will learn about our history, from the local to the global, through creative and participatory activities that will include an exploration of New Mexican traditions in art and a field trip to Ashley Pond to investigate how it has changed over time and what it has meant to different residents of Los Alamos. Throughout the ten weeks, the focus will be on fun, engaging activities that spark children’s curiosity about history.

History Wednesdays is a free program, but registration is required. To register, or if you have questions, please contact Aimee Slaughter, Museum Educator for the Los Alamos History Museum, at
