In celebration of Texas Archeology Month, the French Legation Museum is hosting Dig In! — a free, fun event for kids on Saturday, Oct. 11 from 1-5 p.m. Children will get to excavate artifacts in a mock dig plus many more hands-on activities.


At the Dig In! event, kids can:

  • Excavate artifacts in a mock dig
  • Display excavated artifacts in a mock museum
  • Learn about layering with a stratigraphy activity
  • Piece it together with a pot sherd activity

Tours of the house will be given at the regular admission fees of $5 per person and are offered at 1:15, 2:00, 3:00, and 4:00pm.

Have fun!
