Hands-on history at Archie's Playroom

Submitted By Heather Mellon

Kids can now explore the history of Hayward's Victorian era in their very own room at the McConaghy House. Located on the second floor of the house museum, "Archie's Playroom" features a variety of games, activities, and programs for children ages 2 to 10. The room is developed by the Hayward Area Historical Society, and is named after Archie McConaghy, the oldest of the McConaghy children.

Archie's Playroom will debut in grand Victorian style on Saturday, June 12, from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., during a special day for kids and families. Children can explore the new hands-on history room, play games, make sock puppets, and watch a fun-filled puppet show presented by the Puppet Company from Oakland's Fairyland. The opening celebration is free and open to the public.

Starting June 19th, Archie's Playroom will be open every Saturday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., with special programming every second Saturday. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors, free for children 10 and under and HAHS members.
