Family Day at the San Diego Archaeological Center
School’s Out- Summer Days in San Pasqual Valley
In collaboration with the San Dieguito River Park, the San Diego Archaeological Center presents “School’s Out, Summer Days in San Pasqual Valley”.
“Mom, what’s a Tussy Mussy? Dad, how do you play marbles? Grandma, why did you make rag dolls when you were a little girl, can I make one?
Families, youth groups and life-learners are invited to relax and have fun during an old fashion summer day event. Interactive stations will be set up around the Center where participants will have the opportunity to create tussy mussys, rag dolls, scrub clothes on a wooden washboard, punch leather and play games of marbles and jacks. Refreshments reminiscent of past summer days will be available for your enjoyment.
As the summer heats up with activities, make sure this is one family event you don’t miss. Bring plenty of drinking water, wear appropriate foot and head gear, and be prepared to have fun. The Center Museum will also be open for further educational and engaging experiences.
Center members will enjoy this event at no charge. There will be a cost of $10 for non-members, with a maximum $25 charge for a family. Reservations are required. Please reserve your space early; deadline is July 10, 2008.

The San Diego Archaeological Center was created in 1993 to provide an archaeological curation facility for the San Diego Region. The Center was the first nonprofit organization in the nation dedicated solely to curating and sharing archaeological collections with the public. Planning is underway to create a spacious and light-filled lobby, enhanced exhibition space, classroom, library and research areas. A new entryway will feature native plant landscaping designed to promote conservation, outdoor exhibit and seating areas, water elements and improved signage to promote the Center as a regional tourist destination.
The Mission of The San Diego Archaeological Center is “to preserve archaeological collections and promote their educational, scientific and cultural use to benefit a diverse public.”
The game of marbles dates back 400 years
