Educating Hearts and Minds

The Museum supports active participation and discovery. In order to maximize the learning experience for students, we strongly encourage preparation and discussion prior to your visit. Following your visit, a debrief will enable students to connect the Museum experience to the realities of their everyday world.

To support teachers in their efforts to customize learning experiences for their students, we offer special youth programs and events year-round, the resources of our award-winning library and archives, and special speakers that you can invite to your school or community.
