Education Programs

Curriculum based, experiential learning

Our programs allow students to explore topics related to immigration, identity, history, citizenship and diversity. Programs are inspired by exhibition content, our growing story collection and based on curriculum outcomes.

Programs are scheduled to be 2 hours long but can be shortened to 1 hour if needed. Note: shorter programs will not include all activities.

All programs are available in French or English.
