For Teachers & Parents

We are working on creating activities you can do from home!

We offer online resources for teachers and parents, such as our:

– Online Natural History Exhibit:
– Online “Now & Then” Archival Exhibit of Local Buildings:
– Online Oral History Videos:
– A new “Guess What It Is!” Online Exhibit:

We also offer on-site free school programs all year round! A donation is appreciated but not necessary. Please contact us and provide at least one week’s notice if possible by emailing or calling 902-624-6263.
