Pastimes in Past Times: Chester at Play

Our seasonal exhibit for 2015, “Pastimes in Past Times: Chester at Play,” can be seen for the last time on Friday & Saturday, Nov. 26 & 27, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. From dolls and blocks to Lotto and Erector Sets, the exhibit focuses on the ways Chester families spent their leisure time indoors, as well as outdoors with baseball games and winter sports such as sledding and skating.

Children and families in Chester enjoyed the toys and games in the exhibit and several exhibited items were made in Chester.

All ages are encouraged to participate in a game (we have a few tables of interactive old-time games to play), listen to audio recollections, handle a vintage baseball – have fun!
