School Field Trips

Middle & High School Tours:

Holocaust Exhibit and Social Lab Tour 3 hours
7th grade and above

Students actively explore the dynamics of prejudice and discrimination historically and today. In the Holocaust exhibit, students receive a card that reveals the story of a child whose life was changed by the Holocaust. Promoting critical thinking and youth empowerment, experiences in the Social Lab challenge students to examine themes such as the power of words and images, contemporary human and civil rights and the importance of speaking up. Facilitated reflections support the students as they engage with the exhibits. 


Anne Tour 1.5 hours
5th grade and above

The tour will shed light on Anne Frank's family background and reveal little-known details of Anne's childhood.

Students will be inspired by the legacy and lessons of her writing and timeless voice.
