Emphasis 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.
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.
History Explorer Trunks
Throughout the year, we offer tours and workshops on a variety of subjects geared toward various age groups and interests. Perhaps you can’t get away to the museum. We will send materials to you. You may borrow one of our traveling trunks for up to two weeks for free. The trunks include background information on each topic, replica artifacts, worksheets and activities for students, and SOL-based lesson plans for you to use. The trunks are perfect for classrooms, after-school programs, homeschoolers, churches, scouts, and other groups. We are offering trunks for the following topics:
