History at Home
We’re bringing Heritage Square to you!
We’re all getting used to kids learning at home instead of going to school in-person. But we are in this together — well, together but separately! Here are a few Heritage Square activities to keep away those “social distancing” blues. The list will be growing all the time, so check back for new activities to do and things to discover.
Once you’ve completed a project, share it with us on social media with the hashtags: #heritagesquarephx, #museumfromhome, and #historyathome. Stay healthy and safe, and hang in there!

How Does it Work?
We’re all looking for ways to keep busy at home, so here’s a list of books we like (no surprises – they’re mostly nonfiction history!), a couple of TV shows, and a handful of podcasts we like listening to. Enjoy!
