Educational Materials

The Museum’s educational materials supplement its tour and classroom programs. If you are planning a self-guided tour for a middle school or high school group, we recommend printing copies of one of our scavenger hunts as a fun and educational way for your students to explore the exhibits. It may also be a good idea to be prepared with scavenger hunts if you have booked Guided Tour Priority, in the event that there are no docents available. Curricula are also available for pre- and post-visit activities.
