Hamilton's Women

Saturday, January 21, 2017 -
2:00pm to 3:00pm

Alexander Hamilton was not just a powerful Founding Father, he was also a loving husband and father, a flirtatious brother-in-law, and an incorrigible lady-killer. In this new living-history portrayal, meet the real Schuyler sisters who captivated Hamilton: his wife, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton, her sister, the charming, witty Angelica Schuyler Church, and her other sister, high-spirited Peggy Schuyler van Rensselaer.

Caring for Keepsakes

Saturday, February 18, 2017 -
2:00pm to 3:00pm

Why does newspaper yellow? How should I store my wedding dress? Can I restore old family photographs? What do I use to dust my Great Aunt's desk? These and many other questions are answered by museum curator Ellie Carlson. Precious heirlooms deserve the same care and informed treatment they would receive if they were part of a museum collection.
