Historic Mackinac on Tour

Students experience the past, touch artifacts and learn about colonial life in Michigan with Historic Mackinac on Tour. During this fun presentation, two experienced and lively costumed interpreters bring the fur trade and Straits of Mackinac history to life. The program includes exciting demonstrations, hands-on activities and a truck full of touchables. Students help with trading and bartering, carry a fur bale, get dressed in historic clothing and hear sounds of the past. If outside the local area, several programs in the district or general area are needed.
