Lucy Goes to Oregon
Guided tour — Kansas Museum of History, Topeka
Grades — pre-K—2nd, ages 4-8
The museum’s youngest visitors are introduced to life on the Oregon Trail through this interactive tour. Groups listen to a short story about a little girl, Lucy, who travels to Oregon with her family, then they see and touch some of the things families brought with them on their adventure. Children then pack a small covered wagon with necessary supplies for the journey before visiting the full-size covered wagon in the museum gallery.
