Learn About Quilts, History, Art, Math, and More!

The DAR Museum offers learning opportunities for students, families, and adults as part of Eye on Elegance: Early Quilts of Maryland and Virginia. These programs bridge the past to the present, make history interactive and engaging, and spark imagination.

Most of all we want to make history fun, interactive, and relevant.
-- Marilyn Sklar, DAR Museum Curator of Education
