At Your School

ACWM Educators provide an onsite visit to your classroom with resources. Using historical and critical thinking skills, students investigate people’s lives, the impact of war, and how echoes from the past surround us.

At The Museum

During field trips at ACWM, students become historians, exploring primary source documents and artifacts to delve deeply into the human stories of the Civil War.

Our museum educators will virtually administer a program via Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, or a School Dictated Platform.
