Great Gauntlets!

Buy Tickets

Create and personalize your own gauntlet inspired by knights in shining armour.

We’re throwing down the gauntlet by challenging kids to make their own customized hand and arm protectors. Take a break from admiring shining Renaissance suits and swords in the Museum’s Armour exhibition. We’ll show you how to craft a gauntlet using card stock and paper fasteners instead of plate metal and rivets — no metalsmithing skills required! Find out why effective and practical armour requires a balance between mobility and protection.
