In conjunction with the Temperance and Turmoil exhibit, join the Grout Museum District as we step back in time and experience life during the Great Depression. Build "Hoovervilles" out of basic materials and learn the origin of their name. Make dolls out of scrap fabric. Learn basic sewing skills you can use to patch your clothes, and brush up on how you can "use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without"!
September 21 is also Smithsonian Magazine's Museum Day Live! Sign up for a ticket here and receive free admission for yourself and one guest at one of our sites.
