The Museum provides many educational opportunities to Aiken County’s public, private and home schools. In-school Trunk Shows provide standards based programs for the third, fourth and fifth grades. We also have a check-out trunk with artifacts from various periods for teachers to use in their own lesson planning. These trunks can be modified (somewhat) to meet your needs. We also have a Museum Scavenger Hunt for third, fourth and fifth grade field trips as well as the traditional tours. All programs are free of charge but we do need advance notice. Please make your reservations now for November through May. Please contact Mary White for more information. M-F 10am to 5pm 642-2015 or e-mail: mwhite@aikencountysc.gov.
