Education: Book A World Tour — No Passport Required!Theme Tours | Practicalities
They know many of the items in the collection intimately and tell exciting stories geared to the special interests of your class or group. Enjoy the "Guess What" glass case, bring a camera to photograph yourselves in our international dress-up collection, sit down to an intriguing folk tale, tape your own symphony with our world instruments, or create a piece of ethnic art. We will take artifacts out of the cases for your close inspection and for you to sketch. It's a mini-trip around the world that you will be talking about for days! Tours last from 1-2 hours.
While we have the flexibility to tailor a tour to your interests, some themes appeal to certain ages. Each is unique as we consult with the teacher or group leader. Schools, family reunions, camps, clubs, birthday parties, senior centers, groups of 15 or more can book a theme tour.
Also the Museum can be booked or rented for special events, or private parties including dances, cabarets, weddings, blessings, workshops, performances, birthday and sleepovers. Please contact (603) 924-4555 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
