Tampa Bay History Center Set for 'A Little History'

A Little History returns this fall with a new line-up of activities for your little ones. During each weekday class, the History Center's early childhood educators will entertain and enlighten with stories, songs, crafts and other age-appropriate activities related to the History Center's exhibits.

September 15 - Little Ybor
Little ones explore Ybor City's rich Hispanic heritage by playing games young immigrants loved as well as embarking on a scavenger hunt for Ybor's artifacts. Kids will even practice making a pretend Cuban sandwich! Story time, music, and crafts add to the fun.

October 13 - Museum Mysteries
Enjoy a spooky (not scary!) adventure as you solve the case of the missing artifact. Fingerprints may be taken as we search behind-the-scenes and through the galleries to find the culprit. Age appropriate crafts and games add to the exciting mystery.

November 15 - Big Movers: Trains, Planes and Ships
Planes, trains, and ships abound here at the History Center. See how many you can spy in our galleries and get a glimpse of a real cruise ship only a few feet away. Check out our new train exhibit in addition to games, songs, and crafts.

December 18 - A Pioneer Holiday
Have an old-fashioned holiday this year as you learn the many traditions of Florida's first pioneer kids. Make old timey decorations, then mosey on into our Cracker cabin and decorate it for the season. Dress up in pioneer clothes and even make butter the old fashioned way.

A Little History is open to children ages 3 to 5 with an adult companion. One adult must accompany every two children. Programs are held one weekday per month from 10:30 -11:30 a.m. Each program is $10 per child and $6 per adult. Members of the History Center will receive a $2 discount for both children and adults. Gallery admission is included. Space is limited, pre-registration is required. For more information on A Little History, contact our Assistant Curator of Education, Jennifer Tyson, at (813) 675-8960 or visit our website.
