Community Programs & Events

FREE and open to the public; no advanced registration required.

Would you like to see the artifacts and talk with archaeologists who are working on the I-95/Girard Avenue Project? Throughout the year we hold a variety of free public events. We display artifacts, explain how we found them, and discuss how these objects were used in the past. We’ll even help you learn more about your own family history!
