In 2020, the Miller House Museum is presenting four brand-new exhibits that focus on the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage in America. About this Event In just over 20 years, American women went from wearing corsets, heavy skirts, and layers of petticoats to donning pants and knee-length dresses. What sparked this major change in fashion? The role of clothing – and the lengths to which women would go to defend their choices – is explored in this new exhibit. Learn more about the social changes that prompted these fashion changes, and what that meant for the women’s rights movement throughout the 20th century.Find out more »
Enjoy a fun free family workshop at the Miller House Museum! About this Event What is a barn hex? These beautiful painted circles, featuring elaborate geometric designs and bright colors, are a staple of Pennsylvania Dutch culture. Each feature had an important meaning to the farmer who painted it onto their barn - whether it was meant to protect animals, ward off evil, or welcome people to their property. Learn more about what these hex symbols meant and then get a chance to design and paint your own during this family workshop! Our workshops are open-house style, so you can drop by any time between 11-2. This craft takes approximately 45 minutes to make. Each of our family workshops includes free admission to the Miller House Museum. Parental supervision of children is required. Our Family Workshops have been made possible by the generous support of the CSX Corporation.Find out more »
