Group Programs

Take your group or class on an immersive, eye–opening journey through time to explore history and today’s vibrant Native American cultures. The Pequot Museum’s award–winning, interactive, multi–media environment stimulates the senses, captures the imagination, and stirs the spirit! Group rates are available for groups of 10 or more people with advanced reservations. 

Every program has built-in opportunities for students to develop and apply skills in reading, writing, listening, speaking and language arts. What we offer aligns with the College, Career and Civic Life (C3) Framework assisted learning programs which will prepare young minds for college through the integration of arts and humanities through interdisciplinary inquiry-based study.

 

"Evaluating Children’s Books about Native Americans: It was incredibly informative. [I will] use it to modify content lessons in my classroom. I will not only ‘pre-read’ the story time books, but I have learned how important it is to research the author & tribe as well. I learned a lot which will greatly aid in my story choices."
