Request a School Tour or Workshop

The Whatcom Museum provides educational opportunities to thousands of students each year by way of hands-on art, Northwest history, and cultural workshops and presentations. We also offer interactive, guided tours of the Museum’s exhibitions, as well as professional development coursework for educators.

Our programs are designed to support the educational goals of teachers and students of all grade levels, from pre-school through high school, as well as college. We align our field trips to local district curriculum and the Washington State Essential Academic Learning Requirements. While programs are designed to conform to standards at certain grade levels, most can be adapted for students in adjacent grades. Lesson plans about each program are available on our school tour page.
