Educational Programs

The educational offerings of the museum, though designed to be interactive and fun filled expeditions, also connect students to the history, geography and culture of the great state of Louisiana!

Each lesson begins with a pre-visit activity which prepares the students for an actual visit to the museum.  Upon arrival, the students are treated to a participatory musical overview of the museum.  Students then enjoy searching the galleries as they become explorers in age appropriate treasure hunts.

Led by an excited museum educator, the galleries “come to life” as the students proceed and discover the interactive displays and artifacts.  Students learn history, geography and the culture of the state of Louisiana while enjoying the exciting and interactive exhibits!

Post-visit activities, which can be used for assessment, are included in every program.  Large group as well as small group specialized programming is offered by the museum educators.  All educational programming is aligned to the state content standards and Grade Level Expectations (GLE’s).
