Otis House Museum
Students learn about work, family, household, and neighborhood life as it was 200 years ago by assuming roles of real working-class and wealthy Bostonians in 1800. Led by "house servants," students visit the home of the Otis family, work as "apprentices" in a plaster workshop, and explore their 1800s neighborhood, historic Beacon Hill. The visit ends with a lively wrap-up game that reinforces the concepts learned throughout the day. 4 hour program for grades 4-9.
