Family Night

Presenting a “A Knight's Tale”

Higgins Armory Museum will present “A Knight’s Tale” - the history of arms & armor in Western Europe.

Photo of some of the armor pieces on display.

The emergence of the knightly class followed the fall of Rome and continued to the flourish of chivalric romance in the 16th century. During this period the evolution of arms and armor from the mail jauberk of Charlemagne to the full plate tournament armor at the court of Maximillian I was explained. The program was entertaining yet instructive in its introduction to the history of arms and armor in Western Europe. The children enjoyed being involved in the demonstration of the various pieces on display.

Clowning Around

You will just love our friends “Marmalade” and “Petunia”. The children will love their face painting, balloon twisting and the special magic.

Marmalade painted not only faces but wrists as well.
