The History Museum is proud of its extensive list of educational offerings for schools. The museum can meet the needs of students in several ways. Classes can visit the historic houses and exhibit galleries on field trips. The History Museum can also provide education in the classroom by visiting your class with audio/visual materials through presentations. Special programs designed just for schools are scheduled at various times throughout the academic year. The History Museum’s Education Department has developed a list of Indiana Academic Standards met through museum visits and school programs.
School groups visit The History Museum regularly to experience history in a unique and interactive way. We offer learning for virtually all age groups, from Pre-K through college. Guided tours are available and school groups are also welcome to tour the museum’s exhibits on their own, as long as teachers and chaperones accompany the students.
