School Tours

Guided tours direct students to look up, down and all around recognizing that history is not just a thing of the past but surrounds us in our everyday lives. Museum staff will encourage visitors to take a closer look at the clues historians use such as eyewitness accounts, graphics, artifacts, memorabilia and first hand experiences.

Multidisciplinary activities throughout the museum, align with the curriculum, address many learning styles and levels, encourage students to interact, think critically, create, share and most of all demonstrate that Frameworks can be fun!

School groups have two options when planning their visit to the museum:

Option One

Guided Tour: (length of tour – approximately 1 ½ hours)
