Toy Tours at Troy Historic Village
Enjoy the Play at the Village exhibit at Troy Historic Village at night and learn about toys old and new with a 90-minute staff-led “Toy Tour” to discover the fun and fascinating history of play. Explore how toys have changed over time, from homemade dolls, puzzles, and wooden figures, to mass-produced train sets, plastic ponies, cars, stuffed animals, and more. Families can also examine the ways in which seemingly simple playthings actually speak to more complex ideas about social norms, gender, and representation. Registration required. Families not able to visit during the tour can schedule a self-guided tour during open hours.
