Help your students get up close to natural and cultural history however we can. Want to join us in the building? Check out our in-person programs, they make great field trips. If you come to us, it’s easy to add on a film in our Theatre, or show in the Planetarium. If you’re school is located in Hastings, we’ll bring the Museum to your classroom! Still can’t make the trip? Try a Virtual Field Trips. These can be delivered from the Museum to your school or directly to your students’ homes for at-home learning days.

We’ve also offer: Astronomy Spotlight. It’s a video series that previews what students can look for in the night sky each month. It joins our other free online offering, the Museum Minute,. It highlights longtime exhibits, local history and much more!
