September Family Activities in Waltham and Cambridge

If you've got kids, why not bring them to Saturday's "Innovations of Yesteryear" festival in Waltham?

    This hands-on event will feature an eclectic, interactive assortment of innovations prior to 1950. Ride on a miniature train, check out a gigantic camera, fire a Viking catapult, and type a letter to your Nana on a vintage 1920s typewriter. We’ve got noisy steam engines, putt-putt autos, high-wheel bikes, musical instruments (ever hear of a Sarrusaphone?), spinners and weavers, blacksmiths, antique sports & games, watches & clocks, and more.

More info is on this PDF flyer.

And later in September ( 9.26-9.28), the MIT Museum hosts Innovation Weekend.
