Maximize Student Learning Potential With a Class Visit to the Thunder Bay Museum!

The Museum’s professional Education Department offers a full range of fun and engaging programs for students of every grade, designed specifically to fit into the Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum.

Our exhibits and artifacts provide a rich and illuminating historical backdrop that helps students immerse themselves in the past while making connections to what they are learning in the classroom. Every year thousands of students visit the Museum to learn about their own community’s history and about the lives of their ancestors. They leave the Museum with a wider appreciation of the significant role history plays in all of our lives.

For teachers unable to bring their classes to the Museum, we offer programming in your classroom and newly updated Education Kits to borrow from your board office. These outreach programs may include artifacts, audio-visual presentations, and activities relevant to the theme.

Teachers, please explore the information below, choose the program most suitable for your needs and contact our Education Services Manager to set up a visit or for more details. Programs often fill up quickly, so book early.
