Ever wonder if you learned the whole story in that high school history class? Well, you most likely didn't, but now's your chance to get to learn what you didn't learn then. Dr. Stefan Schindler, Woodrow Wilson Fellow and visiting lecturer in philosophy at Salem State University, will discuss how the system of education has omitted some lessons of history in a program this morning at the Explorers Lifelong Learning Institute, 10 Federal St., Salem. The presentation starts at 10 a.m. and is open to all. Donations will be accepted from nonmembers in attendance. For more information, visit www.explorerslli.org.

As part of the Essex National Heritage Area's Trails & Sails program, the Swampscott Historical Society will host an open house of the Sir John Humphrey House from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This historic first period house, at 99 Paradise Road, Swampscott, will be open free of charge to the general public. Guided tours will be led by several Historic Society members.

Celebrate art, culture, history and the Ipswich River at the 27th Annual Ipswich Art Show and Sale, from 5 to 10 p.m. at Ipswich Town Hall, 25 Green St., Ipswich. The show and sale features works by Ipswich residents. An opening reception with food, beverages, live music with Tom Palance & Friends, and a presentation of the Massachusetts Cultural Council Gold Star Award will start at 7. Admission is free; donations are welcome. For more information on this weekend-long event, visit www.ipswicharts.com.
