Education at the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum uses cultural history and the Museum’s collections to engage visitors with one another and the larger community and to inspire inquiry and exploration beyond our walls.
The Museum offers family programs that highlight world cultures and are appropriate for families with children ages 5 and older.
Museum Tours: The Museum is currently undergoing a renovation and transformation of our galleries. When we reopen at the end of 2014, we will resume our program for K-12 classes led by trained Gallery Guides. K-12 guided tours at the Museum will provide students with memorable learning experiences linked to our collections of objects from ancient, historic and contemporary cultures around the world.
If you have any questions regarding our educational programs and tours, please call 510-643-9679 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Classroom teaching kits and on-line curricula developed by the Museum are available. These materials can stand alone in the classroom, or be used to complement a guided tour. Click here to see a list of available teacher resources.
