Armor Returns to Armor Hall for a Day


Armor Hall

Co-presented with Historic Arms, as part of our ongoing celebration of former illustrious residents of newly renovated, historic Wave Hill House, we’ve got a special treat in store. This Saturday, we reintroduce armor to Armor Hall, the magnificent space built by Bashford Dean, a scholar, scientist and first curator of the Metropolitan Museum’s collection of arms and armor. Armor Hall was completed in 1927. Learn about chivalry, and how armor is made, watch fencing demonstrations, make brass rubbings and immerse yourself altogether in the knightly world. Singing juggler John Grimaldi adds to the medieval entertainment.  Ages 8 and older welcome with an adult. Illustrious Residents event.

Free with admission to the grounds.
