Terrific Tuesdays @ Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library
Aug 20 @ 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Time Travel!

Every Tuesday in July and August

10:00 am–3:00 pm

Looking for something fun and educational to do with the kids while they're out of school for the summer? During this year's Terrific Tuesdays we begin with the pre-historic era, inspired by some fun fossils recently “discovered” on our patio, then zoom forward to 1600.  From that point, we advance 50 years each week, exploring some of the customs, discoveries, and otherwise momentous moments along the way.

Special guests will be on hand to highlight skills and trades from the past and present.

Each week will feature a different time period and a different special guest:

July 2: Pre-History

July 9: 1600-1650

July 16: 1650-1700

July 23: 1700-1750

July 30: 1750-1800

August 6: 1800-1850

August 13: 1850-1900

August 20: 1900-1950

August 27: 1950-2000

Members and children under 2 are free. Nonmembers are $5 per child; $5 per one adult accompanying a paying child; additional adults are $15.

*Please note that Terrific Tuesdays is reserved for Winterthur Members or paying guests.  AHS, ROAM, and NARM reciprocity is not available for this program. Thank you for your understanding!

Open for Business: Photography, Trade, and Self-Image, 1870–1950 @ Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library
Sep 10 @ 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM

September 10, 2019–January 5, 2020

A 19th-century prosthetics workshop, a jazz club featured in the Green Book, and a Polish-American car dealership are vastly different businesses, but owners and workers at all three turned to photography to portray themselves and their work. Open for Business: Photography, Trade, and Self-Image, 1870–1950, a student-curated exhibit at Winterthur Museum, Garden, & Library, examines how photography helped small business owners to advertise and represent their shops, goods, and workers. Visitors will encounter historic photographs and objects and explore how entrepreneurship and photography were intertwined. By partnering with the Delaware Historical Society, Open for Business also showcases local business histories, including popular 20th-century Wilmington locales such as The Spot Café, Elsie’s Chicken, and Federal Bakery. The exhibit includes personal interviews and crowdsourced photographs in addition to more than 30 objects from the Winterthur and Delaware Historical Society collections. It will be on view in the Winterthur Galleries.
