Portable Museum Programs

Portable School Programs: We'll Bring Local History to Your Classroom!


Don't have time or funds for transportation? We'll come to you! A Museum Educator will bring hands-on history experience to your classroom, adaptable to an age-appropriate level. Portable Programs are free for all Elmhurst schools and $25 for all other groups. The current lineup of Portable School Programs includes:



Kidstory

Kids take a fascinating journey through Elmhurst history through artifacts and hands-on activities (Grade 2-4).



Becoming an Immigrant

Pack a trunk with German immigrants from the 1800s to learn about what people brought to the New World (Grade 2-4).



Old-Fashioned Games

Students learn how children of the past played through games and toys such as cup-and-ball, spinning tops and hoop-and-sticks (Grade Pre K-5).


1910 School Days

Our 1910 Schoolmarm will come to your classroom to share what a typical school day was like for student in the one-room schoolhouse in the early days of DuPage County.
