Description: See how vastly different it is between 1869 and 1969 at the Museum and also at its largest artifact Salisbury Mansion. See maps of the transition of farmland to industry. Gather the chickens and pigs on the farm and put them back in their pen. Make your own chicken or pig to take home!

Then experience the 1960's at the Museum with a streaming video of the 1969 moon landing. Meet Dr. Goddard, inventor of the world's first liquid-fueled rocket. We will have plenty of Motown music, make tie-dye t-shirts and hippie crafts, hula hoops and then Let's Do The Twist with Smiley! Visit Mrs. B's Diner, go shopping in the Salisbury Store, visit the Smiley Face Gallery - the story of a true Worcester original!

Polar beverages will be available and a spot for you to write down your own memories of the 60's.

Free Fun Friday is courtesy of the Highland Street Foundation.
