INNOVATIVE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES
The Museum can be an exciting classroom to learn about history, language arts, design and more. Teachers and group leaders have used the Museum to create their own lesson plans, reading lists, tours, art projects and scavenger hunts. We also offer our own curriculum-based programs.
In person groups must have a minimum of 10 children and a maximum of 60 with 1 adult per 10 children. In addition to offering tours during the Museum's normal operating hours of 10am-4pm Wednesdays-Fridays, student and youth groups can inquire about availability for Mondays and Tuesdays 9am-4pm. If these times or group sizes do not match your group's needs, please consider booking a virtual program.

Communicating with Signs a 75 minute program ideal for grades K-3
In this program, we will discuss what symbols are and how businesses use them to create signs that communicate with their customers. We will explore signs from the late 1800s through the 1980s and see how technology influenced sign design. We will then use all that we learned to inspire us to create our own personal signs.
Then vs. Now: Inflation a 2 hour program ideal for grades 6-8
In this program, we will discuss the concept of inflation using signs from the collection. The discussion will include what causes and affects inflation. Students will travel back in time to 1963 when a burger cost 15 cents and create a personal budget and then jump to 2022 to see how prices and their budgets change.
