Kids Activities

HEY YOU…KIDS! Don’t just stand there….get ready to have some real fun.

The Gathering is a rip-roaring good time…but you gotta get going to see it all.


Check out all this cool stuff to do!

History, art, music, and exploration are woven into the festivities at The Gathering at Garst, giving young visitors a glimpse into the past.


  • Children and their families can experience life in the slow lane when they embark on horse-drawn carriage rides where they can relax and enjoy the scenery.

  • Senses come alive in the living history encampment village where Native Americans story tellers spin captivating tales and bone rattling cannon blasts make sure everyone is paying attention! The entire village is rich with historic sights and sounds for the guests of all ages.


Once again, The Gathering at Garst offers activities to interest the junior crowd.

  • The Eagle Eye Explorer Scavenger Hunt returns with new twists and treats to delight the young adventurer. Explorers and their grown-ups can find maps and instructions at the Eagle Eye Trading Post.

  • New this year is an educational play area designed especially for the youngest guests. “Can You Dig It” fossil exploration will give tots an opportunity to unleash their inner paleontologist.


Kids’ activities are located near the front of the museum along Broadway both Saturday and Sunday 11:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
