School Programs

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the Monroe County Museum System is not able to offer in-person programming at this time.


We proudly offer FIELD TRIP FUNDS for groups using school or public busing to visit the Monroe County Museum System.
Call 734.240.7780 for questions or help with submitting your application.

We are flexible on days and times and offer compliance with Michigan standards and benchmarks, plus fun in learning about our local history.

We have great educational opportunities for your class at the Monroe County Museum and the Territorial Park on the River Raisin. We cover a variety of historical topics for students to learn about, including Native American life, the Victorians, our veterans and military, the early French Canadians, and the Fur Trade, several with hands-on activities, and all in line with Michigan Standards & Benchmarks. Visit one site or all; we adapt our schedule to yours, and give your students a positive, interesting experience at a professional museum, and not far from home! Call today for information, or to schedule a tour or presentation.
