History is made here!
The Fairfield Museum is delighted to welcome K12 teachers, students, community groups and families to the Museum to experience our award-winning interactive history and art programs. The Museum aims to use the past as a starting point to explore important current issues and questions. We believe that cultivating a deep appreciation of history is essential to building civic engagement. By bringing together diverse perspectives and experiences, we can encourage participants to consider their own role and agency within their community.
Walking Tours, Gallery Tours, Primary Source Workshops, Living History experiences, tours of the 1750 Ogden House, and programs in Fairfield County schools serve over 6,000 students and educators each year from across the state.
The Museum is committed to offering opportunities for schools in need through the generous support of funders and private donors. Program fee waivers and funds for buses are available on a first come, first served basis.
Professional Development & Teacher Resources
The Fairfield Museum is a leader in Professional Development programs for educators, providing lectures by historians and scholars, events, and other workshops. Our Virtual School Programs provide interactive materials to use in the classroom while Teacher Resources share Pre and Post Visit guides and curricular connections.
Family Programs enable families and children to learn about history together. Through experimentation, and fun hands-on activities, participants will play, explore exhibitions, make art together, and consider their role in our community.
Kids are invited to join the Fairfield Museum for summer and school vacation camps that offer hands-on arts and culture experiences that bring history to life. Our camp programs are designed for kids ages 7-12 and feature a different themes or topics connected to the Museum’s rich collections and exhibitions. In addition to gallery explorations, art projects, and history investigations, kids will have plenty of time to play outside in the Museum commons.
