ARCHAEOLOGY DIG PROGRAMS
Work alongside our crew as they dig, sift, identify and record the remains of Baltimore’s colony. We’ll provide the tools and training. All you need is a hankering to get hands-on with history.
Space is limited and advance registration is required for the half and full day dig programs. We are now taking bookings for the 2020 Season. Please contact us to reserve your space today.
DIG AND DIG IN
Spend the morning hands on with history as a member of our archaeological crew. Then scrub up and hike to Ferryland Lighthouse for an award-winning gourmet picnic.
Space is limited and advance registration is required. We are now taking bookings for the 2020 Season. Please contact us to reserve your space today.
We have room to run and plenty of family-friendly activities. Our Baltimore Backpacks (FREE rental with admission) are chock-full of site-specific challenges designed to keep young visitors active and engaged.
GREAT COLONIAL COOK OFF
Our interpretive staff, armed with recipes from the 17th century, encourage you to join them in the ultimate cook off challenge. With their bizarre ingredients, missing measurements, and directions only a goode huswife could follow, 17th century recipes are anything but simple. There are weekly prizes to be won, and a grand prize at the end for all who have participated. For more details, please visit Great Colonial Cook Off .
Not a cook? You can still experience the weekly Great Colonial Cook Off with a tour of the Colony of Avalon’s 17th Century Kitchen (included with general admission)! Starting July 13, 2020 our kitchen will be serving up the challenge recipes for 6 weeks. Let your taste buds be the judge!
