George Washington's birthday

Best Bet

February 13, 2003|By Lori Sears

We cannot tell a lie. The National Museum of Dentistry is celebrating George Washington's birthday on Sunday. Honest. The museum will have on display an original set of Washington's dentures and will offer tours of the George Washington Gallery, which features artifacts and information relating to the first president's dental history.

Actor Dean Malissa of the American Historical Theatre portrays the founding father in an interactive performance, "Coming of Age Along the Potomac," at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.

Also, visitors are invited to try on Colonial tri-cornered hats, hear period music, participate in scavenger hunts, visit a Colonial play station and, of course, have some cherry pie (and cherry soda).

Celebrate Washington's birthday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Museum of Dentistry, 31 S. Greene St. $3; free for ages 6 and under. Call 410-706-0600.
