We believe that museums, at their best, are grounded in the beauty and strength of their communities and accessible to all. And we’re here to help! We know that teachers and professors often don’t have a lot of free time, and the resources below are always online for you to access whenever you need them. Whether you need inspiration for a lesson plan, or want to book a visit, you can do it online whenever works for you!
If you have questions, or would you prefer to speak with someone, email Education Manager Ashley Rowley or call (909) 865-3146 and we’ll be happy to help. We’re here for you!
