Children's History Hour - Pedro's Pan: A Gold Rush Story

Pikes Peak or Bust! After the discovery of gold in Colorado thousands of people came West in search of their fortune. We’ll read “Pedro’s Pan: A Gold Rush Story” by Matthew Lasley, practice different mining techniques, and explore museum exhibits for gold! Children ages 3-6 and their favorite adult are invited to explore regional history through story time, a family-friendly tour, activity, and craft. Make a morning of it! After the event learn through play in our interactive “Trade at Bent’s Fort” children’s exhibit or explore the museum with Max the Marmot by picking up a Picture Hunt at the front desk.
