If you’re unable to bring your group to us, we can come to you! Our education staff is prepared to visit your classroom with Remington reproductions and other materials to provide hands-on learning activities to suit your curricular needs. We love working with teachers in all subject areas!

We enjoy sparking curiosity in young learners' minds, and can validate this learning experience through a later planned field trip. Let our visit to your school be the anticipatory set for an end of the year field trip here.
A visit to your class room is good for the Museum, too. Outreach programming helps us to build our audience, adding to a greater chance of future funding for our programming and its expansion, with most programming offered free and always open to the public.
After we visit your classroom, a Museum tour and exploration time at the children’s Museum will help bring everything full-circle for your students. Area educators can plan a field trip where we can combine fine arts education with hands-on learning. After a trip to the main Museum to view Remington’s original art, teachers and students can head to the Eva Caten Remington Education Center for free play and exploration time and to solidify their learning experience with a guided art activity.
