Education ProgramsEmphasis on Education


Education is a primary focus of the Hampton History Museum. The staff continues to cooperate with Hampton city schools to enhance the division's social studies curriculum with outreach and field trip programs. The museum has developed these offerings with input from administrators and teachers so the experiences will be in line with the Virginia Standards of Learning and incorporate teaching techniques and themes that are emphasized by the division.

Additional Programs


In addition to school programs, the staff provides activities for Girl and Boy Scouts, after school programs, and summer camps, along with workshops and seminars aimed at adult audiences.
