WE OFTEN THINK "SCHOOL" when we think of learning, but the fact is most learning occurs outside the boundaries of formal education — schools and libraries are just a small part of a much larger (and growing) dispersed network of knowledge sources, including art and history institutions like the Whatcom Museum.

It's a role we wholeheartedly embrace; education is central to the Whatcom Museum's mission as a center of cultural expression and inquiry. Our staff of educators is devoted to developing a rich variety of learning opportunities related to art, Northwest history and nature for all ages.

HOW RICH? Last year, this remarkable team ran more than 1,100 programs designed to engage, enlighten and entertain you and others like to learn something new every day!

In this section, discover more about the Museum's adult, family, school and early-childhood programs, tours, classes and workshops, and be sure to check our calendar for details about current programs.
