School Programs
(Includes homeschool groups)

Please Note: Arrangements may be made between March and October for Educational Tours during May, June, September, and October.

The Fort at No. 4 Open Air Museum offers two types of school tours to meet the needs of different students.

blacksmith speaking with students

Self-guided

Students can explore material culture from the edge of the woods in the 18th century at their own pace and on their own schedule with supplemental tour materials. This is an excellent option for younger children or mixed-age groups.

Intensive Rotation

Students can participate in an interactive program that is more structured. Although all ages are welcome, this option is designed primarily for grades four through eight.

Students can connect to the past by exploring a number of topics. These will vary depending on staff availability but may include:

  • Foodways
  • Growing our Clothing
  • Blacksmithing
  • 18th Century Medicine
  • Indigenous Material Culture
  • The Value of Money in the 18th Century
  • The Role of Religion and Education
  • Games and Leisure Time
