Our youth education programming encourages students to uncover history in their everyday lives. Programs connect local history across disciplines in the classroom through investigation, research, creation and connection. We offer both site-based and remote programming for classroom educators or local families. Come to the museum and you might investigate archival photos, discover trends in local natural history or engineer irrigation for homesteading cabins.
