Today is Family Day at Constitution Island!! What a wonderful way to spend a beautiful autumn afternoon in the #HudsonValley!

Come explore the limits of your imagination!

Hosted by the Constitution Island Association and Putnam History Museum, Family Day offers young families the opportunity to explore Constitution Island through a variety of fun, hands-on learning experiences and entertainment - all set in the unique, natural and historic setting of Constitution Island.

Visitors can explore the footpaths and ruins of Revolutionary War fortifications, and transport back to a time before Henry Hudson sailed up “the river that flows two ways.” On-hand docents are available to discuss the island's historic Warner House, it's famous inhabitants the Warner Sisters, and the island's beautiful gardens.

Family Day activities include live animal exhibits, professional story-tellers in period costume, live music, period games and the famous “teddy bear parade” for younger children. Souvenirs, hot dogs and drinks can also be purchased and enjoyed on the historic Revolutionary War Parade field.

The event is free, but donations are gratefully accepted!
