Historic New Harmony invites schoolchildren to New Harmony, Indiana April 18 through 20, 2018 to experience what life was like in the 1800's through the eyes of a variety of period artisans. This year we welcome back artisans who specialize in paper marbling, wood carving, beekeeping, tinsmithing and weaving, to name just a few. Our 19th century doctor will present interactive shows each day at Murphy Auditorium and will once again be dueling at the Atheneum in the afternoon. Visitors can also explore the Harmonist Labyrinth.
