The Charleston Museum’s Education Department assists to accomplish the Museum’s mission by providing opportunities to local and visiting students and families for field trips, afterschool enrichment, workshops, offsite programs, and events focused on the natural and cultural history of the Lowcountry.
The Museum presents a variety of educational programs for students to learn about the fascinating cultural and natural history of the South Carolina Lowcountry. These programs are a valuable means for teachers to supplement their regular curriculum, offering students the opportunity to experience classes led by accomplished Museum educators, guided tours of the exhibit galleries or historic houses, and student-oriented scavenger hunts that explore historic objects and specimens. Museum field trips are an excellent opportunity for students to have fun while they learn. To see a full list of programs based on grade level, please see the links below.
