Outreach Elementary Programs

Museum educators in period dress will come to your classroom and conduct one or more of our exceptional outreach programs.  Outreach programs to classrooms include modified versions of select in-person field trips and completely new programs designed specifically for your classroom. Additional workshops  are available with each program. All outreach programming is based on current Common Core and New Jersey Department of Education standards and will include pre-visit activities.
