Family Fun: Science at the Shultz House Magnetic Experiments

  • Shultz House 30 North Mountain Avenue Montclair, NJ, 07042 United States (map)

At this month’s Family Fun event, we’re talking magnets. Charles Shultz may have been president of Hoboken Savings Bank when he built the house in 1896, but he was always experimenting with science in his home. At this program, we’ll find out what’s behind the museum rope in his fully-intact early 20th century science library. Scientist and Montclair parent, Patricia Abad, PhD, will look at some of the magnetic and electrical equipment on display and discuss the fascination of electrical current when it was first available in homes in the late 1800s. Children will experiment with magnets and static electricity. Admission is free sponsored by Investor's Bank. Registration requested at 973-744-1796 or mail@montclairhistorical.org. Drop in hours from 1 to 4 pm. 30 North Mountain Avenue, Montclair.
