19 Museums, Something New Everyday!

Museum Educators Open House October 3, 2015

We're changing a few things this year. You spoke and we listened. Teachers shared with us that the Fall is an easier time of the school year for you to focus on what's important to the classroom - your continued education. In 2015 we're moving our event date from the end of January to the beginning of October. We're giving you more sessions to choose from, new CPE options and much more. Check back here for updates.
