Pioneer Games At The Wyoming State Museum Saturday May 3

What were some of the games that kids would play 100 years ago? If you want to find out, take a trip to┬áthe past and head down to the Wyoming State Museum for Family Days on Saturday, May 3, 2014. Next month, the Museum features “Pioneer Games,” which allows you and your family to learn about some of the games played a century ago.

Some of the games that youngsters would be found playing in the year 1914 were:

  • Marbles
  • Hoops
  • Hopscotch
  • Cricket

Did you notice that there were no video games, iPhones or computers? Children 100 years ago were expected to entertain themselves. There was no money for expensive games and trinkets, but somehow they figured out how to manage…and they even had fun! There was not as much traffic, and therefore, the streets were a place where many children would meet and play.

Family Days: Pioneer Games is a FREE program that provides families and children the opportunity to be entertained, while learning from the past in a fun way. Most programs are held on the first Saturday of the month from September through May of any given year.

The Wyoming State Museum is located in the Barrett Building – 2301 Central Ave in Cheyenne.
