Educational Programming

Maximize student learning 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 and ability level, designed specifically to adhere to the current Ontario Ministry of Education curriculum.

Every year thousands of students visit the Museum to learn about their own community’s history and about the lives of their ancestors. 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. 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 outreach programming as well as newly updated Education Kits on a variety of historical topics. These outreach programs may include artifacts, audio-visual presentations, and activities relevant to the theme.

Teachers, please explore the information using the links at the top of the page, choose the program most suitable for your needs, and contact our Education & Outreach Coordinator to set up a visit or for more details. Catherine can be reached by email or by telephone at (807) 623-0801 ext. 16.
