Outreach programs bring museum education programs to your location. Programs are designed to be presented in a school environment, at a community center, or at other off-site locations. Best suited for individual classes of up to 30 students, programs are about an hour. Up to four programs or sessions may be scheduled for one school visit. Programs are offered year-round and can be customized; a new program can be created upon request.
