Museum staff and volunteers are available to come to your classroom at no charge for special programs!


Following are some of our specialties:

Patriotic Programs
These programs are appropriate for Flag Day, Proud to be an American Day, Old Glory Day, or any day focusing on patriotism.

Historic Presentations
Invite a staff member to your school or club meeting to host a presentation about current exhibits at the museum.   Background information on the exhibit as well as an in-depth discussion of the exhibit can be presented in addition to crafts and games relevant to the exhibit presented! For more information, please contact our Education Coordinator, Kayte Ricketts at 254-933-5741.

Curator Camp
Your students can be junior curators!  A representative from the museum will visit your classroom to help your students make an exhibit of their own.  The exhibit will be based on a specific theme.  Kids are asked to bring in an item related to the theme to be placed in an exhibit they make together.  This process includes creating labels about their item, constructing an exhibit space together and creating interactive games for the exhibit.  Once completed, information on museum careers will be presented and related to what the students did while making their exhibit.  This can even be extended to allow other classes to visit the exhibit and learn about what your students made and did.   The program is completely free for your classroom.   Please contact our Education Coordinator, Kayte Ricketts at 254-933-5741 for more information and to schedule Curator Camp in your class. 

 

We can also talk to your group about Pioneer Life, the history of the Chisholm Trail, and even a career in a museum!

Pioneer Life
Invite the museum staff to your class and we’ll relive Pioneer days! With some assistance, your students can churn butter and participate in other pioneer-specific activities in the classroom.

Chisholm Trail
Travel the Chisholm trail on a simulated cattle drive. This outreach program is a delight for 4th graders!

Career Day
Can’t decide what to be when you grow up? We bring fun objects into the classroom and discuss the wide range of jobs in a museum.
