      EVENT DETAILS
      Women's History Celebration — "Playing the Past" Junior Program

      Celebrate Women's History Month while earning your "Playing the Past" badge. Many DAR members were active suffragists, including Susan B. Anthony and Alice Paul. In 1913 Alice Paul organized a suffrage parade that ended right here at the DAR Headquarters! Decorate your own "Votes for Women" sash, learn about the history of this important event, and read speeches by the inspiring women that advocated for women's right to vote.  Each participant will recieve a "Playing the Past" self-guided packet with games and activities to help them earn their badge. The activities take about 1 hour to complete and the badge is included in the ticket price. We hope you will also attend the all-day community event, "Women's History Celebration," which is open 10:00-3:00. Family and friends are welcome!  FAQs Do parents and siblings need to purchase a ticket? No; the ticket price covers the cost of materials and badges for the participanting Girl Scouts. Admission to the DAR Museum and the Women's History Celebration event is free.  What if my troop is larger than 10 people? There is a limit of 10 tickets per time slot, but if you have a larger group and would like them to participate at the same time, please contact the museum to discuss options at museum@dar.org    What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
