Learn with us! We take pride in offering educational and interactive Museum experiences for guests in the Hershey and Harrisburg area and beyond.
Tours and Talks
Educational tours and gallery talks with designated experts take place throughout the year. Focused workshops and other programs augment our seasonally changing exhibitions. Public programs including special vehicle displays, movies, music, gallery demonstrations and other forms of special interpretation take place at various times of the year.
Act 48 for Educators
The Pennsylvania Department of Education’s Act 48 requires all PA certified educators to participate annually in ongoing professional education. The Museum now offers Act 48-approved history-focused and innovation-centered educational units through the Capital Area Intermediate Unit 15 (IU15). The activities and lesson plans help to meet the continuing education needs of schools and their professional employees so they, in turn, may meet the specific needs of their students.
