What Teachers Are Saying About Our School Program

Great place for families, couples and anyone who enjoys local history! Super place for school field trips as well! I take my students every year.

Great, hands on learning. Everyone loved it!

Students were engaged! They were enthusiastic in all of the activities. They looked forward to this field trip.

The hands-on experiences stay with the students, and become a touchstone for the rest of the year. For me, I delight in watching my students learn in ways I can’t always replicate in the classroom.

I really appreciate how you and the SMCHA have found a way for kids to be able to learn more about our local history from experts even in the midst of a pandemic. It is the bit of modified normal we are craving at school. Thanks for making a difference.
