Educator and students on tour

People of the Sea and Cedar field trip.

In accordance with our mission, the Whatcom Museum helps teachers and students interpret art, history, and the natural world with innovative and interactive field trips. Many of our programs are directly aligned with state curriculum standards to support classroom goals. Just as importantly, our programs seek to inspire wonder, curiosity, and a desire for knowledge in students of all ages. Our education team is also happy to work with educators to invent something new that aligns with our focus, so if an idea strikes, reach out!
