19th Century Family Fun Night

Enjoy an evening of Old Fashioned Fun at Fort Nisqually's 19th Century Family Fun Night on July 23 from 6 - 9 pm.

Bring your picnic supper and the whole family and participate in games, music and dancing of the mid-1800s.

Kids of all ages will enjoy the special firings of the Candy Cannon throughout the evening. Lemonade and ice cream will be available while supplies last.

A must-see while at the fort is the new temporary exhibit The Abundant Table: Meal Time at Fort Nisqually, which features a number of artifacts that illustrate the table wares associated with the fort in the 1850s. This exhibit answers many questions about the fort such as the types of pottery fragments and patterns found at the original fort site, the daily menu of HBC workers and insight into dining at the Factor's House.

Located in Tacoma's Point Defiance Park, Fort Nisqually Living History Museum is a restoration of the Hudson's Bay Company outpost on the Puget Sound where visitors can journey back in time to the mid-nineteenth century.
