The DAR Museum's period rooms are quite interesting, and kids will enjoy the
tour too. The 45-minute tour is informative, but the real treat is the "Colonial
Adventure" tour for kids. Try to make reservations at least two weeks in advance, but
you could get lucky if you call later.
Besides the period rooms, the DAR is known for its quilts. Once a month, the museum has
a small session for patrons to handle some quilts and have their antique quilts evaluated.
