Field Trips

Coming up next...                                                                      Join us at Museum L-A!


Museum L-A is all about history! 

  • Child Labor
  • Immigration
  • Simple Machines
  • Invention/Innovation
  • Weaving/Textiles
  • Environmental History
  • Learning with Historic Objects


What was it like long ago when young children worked long hours and helped provide for their families? How did it feel to come to a new country and not know anyone? Come learn about the difference between fabrics used long ago by children in textile mills. Look under the microscope at the different fabrics. Practice weaving textiles. At Museum L-A, we will enjoy a guided tour followed by a fun activity of weaving fabrics. There are also gear sets available for young children to entertain themselves while older children weave.
