This option will address a museum gallery theme of your choice and cover its specific period of history. These tours can be shared with your students at your leisure or when it meets your educational focus during the year.
This option offers the live interaction between students and a museum staff member from a specific gallery exhibit. We can also feature specific artifacts and other primary sources to supplement the discussion or gear the discussion around them if desired. We can also include a Q & A session for students after the discussion.  Please let us know the type of virtual platform you would use (ZOOM, Teams, Google, etc.) and we will work with you.
