Through our educational outreach and Public Programming, we give students the ability to visit our museum in whatever way fits their curriculum. Our programs provide students with the ability to dig into the history of California through specially tailored experiences in archaeology, history, and curation. Students are presented with unique perspectives on the history of their city and state as they fit into the broader narrative of our nation as well as the role museums fill in the broader cultural understanding of our communities. It is our continued goal to provide them with context derived through learning from primary accounts, material culture, and professional practices in the areas of history, archaeology, anthropology, and exhibit design.
