Follow the evolution of Thanksgiving through time from traditional celebrations of the Abenaki people to today’s family feast and homecoming with a multi-sensory, 90-minute guided tour of Strawbery Banke Museum! Learn how Thanksgiving transcended time, place, and culture to become the uniquely American holiday celebrated today.  Participants in the tour meet costumed role-players and explore homes from three centuries. In small groups guided by a museum educator, find the common themes of this holiday over three hundred years: charity, survival, gratitude, national identity, and the celebration of family and community.
