Not just a visit to another Museum, our High School programs truly get your students involved in our work.
We are booking now for 2017!
Older students learn valuable new ways to interpret history and are given glimpses into professions such as museum work, teaching, conservation, and more.
Students as Tour Guides
Make your students’ trip to the museum memorable by making them be the tour guide! When the roles are reversed and students become the tour guides, it gives them a unique opportunity to learn history from a different perspective. It also allows them to learn valuable skills in research, presentation preparation and public speaking.
Assign students an object in the museum ahead of time, and then let them present their research findings to the class on the day of your visit. Our Education manager can assist the teacher with any materials needed in advance of this lesson.
Cost: $5 per child; 60-90 minute program.
Custom Guided Tour
Contact us to arrange a custom experience for your group! Is there a particular topic you are trying to teach, but feel that students would be much more engaged if they could experience it in person? With our unique collections, we can definitely help.
We recommend 1 adult chaperone per each 6 students. Additional adults beyond the 1:6 ratio are $5 each. One-on-one aides are free. If you’re interested in our programs, please contact our Education Manager Abby Pietrantonio at 603-772-2622 for more information. Reserve your space today – we book up to one year in advance!
