Educators Corner

A wide variety of resources are available at the museum for use by educators.

We will set an exhibit to coincide with current class studies and emphasis. We will work with home schooling “moms” to offer a social and educational environment for children who might otherwise miss out on the field trip aspect of the normal school situation.

Box Exhibits which may be borrowed by teachers, librarians, clubs, organizations. A classroom or library may keep the materials for up to two weeks. Or a staff member will come to your group with the box exhibit for a presentation.

We will coordinate with classroom teachers to display the “Fruits Of The Classroom”, special art projects, bulletin displays, and other educational tools.

Exhibit Box

The Heritage Museum, seeking to make our exhibits, research, programs and projects as accessible to the greatest number of people, especially students, has prepared a series of BOX EXHIBITS to be loaned at no cost to groups, classrooms, libraries, and individuals.

The exhibits are designed with great weight and consideration given to the State of Louisiana Curriculum Guidelines, Thematic Categories, Benchmarks and Key Concepts in the Social Studies and Art fields.

The following is a list of the exhibits offered:

Outreach Programs

The Heritage Museum monthly publishes Musings, a two to three page newsletter describing programs, exhibits, and events sponsored by the Museum, and providing regular updates on cultural activities and issues relevant to our city.

Box Exhibits
The Museum has created a series of Box Exhibits, using segments of our collection, accompanied by reference material and appropriate labeling. The exhibits are available free of charge to be checked out by teachers, parents, librarians, group leaders or individuals. The exhibits are created with Louisiana educational standards and guidelines clearly in mind. The objects and information panels come to the classroom in small manageable boxes and require only table and bulletin board space for set up. Box Exhibits may be checked out for up to two weeks, or may be a one day event, and may be accompanied by a speaker if desired.

Speakers are available to accompany the Box Exhibits, or you may request a Speaker without the exhibits. Our staff and volunteers welcome the opportunity to speak to area organizations and classrooms.
