Wagner Free Institute of Science, 1700 W. Montgomery Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19121

Celebrate Archives Month Philly at the Wagner Free Institute of Science with an evening of historic lantern slide images and the stories behind them.

Predating the motion picture, lantern slides were used for entertainment, to document, and to illustrate educational programs and courses. The slides, which will come from a variety of Philadelphia institutions and highlight several events, people, and places throughout history, will be projected in the Wagner's 19th century lecture hall using a 1914 lantern slide projector.

Registration is encouraged and will be available soon through Eventbrite. Check the Wagner's website soon for more details. Walk-ins are welcome. Suggested donation for the program is $10 for adults and $5 for children and seniors.
