Programs for Children/Families

BUILDING PRINCETON

After a sold-out inaugural year, Building Princeton is back! Designed to increase awareness of the town’s rich architectural heritage, this family program utilizes 70,000 LEGO building blocks to construct Princeton landmarks. 

Teams each receive a photograph and story of a historic building, which they build within the 2-hour program. When the models are finished, they are placed on a 30-foot map of Princeton, providing an amazing aerial view of the town. 

To register your team, click here. Up to four adults or children can work together; each team needs at least one adult. Ideal for children ages 8-12, but all are encouraged to participate. 

 

The MAGIC and HISTORY of MARQUAND PARK

In 1953, the Marquand family donated 17 acres of their estate, Guernsey Hall, to the municipality of Princeton to serve as an arboretum and passive recreation park.  Once part of a 30-acre farm owned by Judge Richard Stockton Field, Marquand Park is home to more that 140 difference tree specimens, some dating back over 170 years!

Tickets are available for the following date: May 11 at 1:00 PM
