From special programs & tours to hands-on workshops, the musuem engages the entire region with its impressive collections, knowledgeable staff, and interactive atmosphere.

Additionally, we provide educational materials and support for educators to incorporate our museum collections and themes into their own curricula, and host an annual Arts Education Festival every spring, enabling thousands of children and teachers to experience an array of memorable concerts, performances and learning activities.
