Royal Gazette: Bermuda National Trust hosting free open house at Verdmont Museum
A scavenger hunt and traditional games will be among the activities on offer for children at a Bermuda National Trust event on Saturday.
The charity will host a free open house at Verdmont Museum, which was built in about 1700 and is one of the earliest surviving houses on the island.
A spokesman said: “It represents generations of Bermudian families and honours the memory of those enslaved there.
“The open house will feature heritage experiences for all ages, with an array of family friendly displays and activities.
“Children’s activities will include a scavenger hunt, old-style games, quill writing and miniature goats to pet.”
The two-acre property and four-floor house will have family friendly stations focused on archaeology, descendant stories, collections care and insights.
Other topics will include medicinal and culinary traditional knowledge, Bermudian built heritage and historic conservation skills, as well as other threads from the Verdmont story.
Among the community groups involved at the event is the Bermuda Rose Society, which will show old Bermuda roses and discuss their pruning and propagation.
The Plein Air group will be painting in the grounds and selling their artwork.
