Have you ever heard a minstrel play a hurdy-gurdy, or tried your hand at spinning wool? Travel back to a time when illuminated manuscripts and stained glass windows were made to kindle heavenly inspiration. Watch as J. Kenneth Leap and his apprentices paint and assemble stained glass windows by hand, and see a Gutenberg-style printing press in action. Enjoy music played on period instruments, and join students from Bryn Athyn College on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. Learn about the influence of religion on medieval weaponry and cheer your favored knight in a sword battle. Try your hand at spinning wool, explore the galleries on your own, take our cell phone audio tour, and rejuvenate at our Castle Café. Come in medieval costume and get a prize!
