Join Curatorial Director John Leysath for “Arms and Armor,” a presentation on the history and engineering of medieval European armaments.

At the conclusion of the program there will be a short question and answer session. Arms & Armor is ideal for ages 10 and up. Adults $25, Kids Under 12 are $10.
