Field Trips

Available on a case by case basis due to the current pandemic.
Students are encouraged to draw comparisons between the past and the present, explore changes in motion and design, learn a little local history and, most of all, be curious! Interactive activities, exhibits, and crafts help students broaden the scope of learning and explore science, technology, history, design, function and much more. Field trips can be done in partnership with the Delaware State Parks’ Auburn Valley State Park.
*We are also happy to accommodate home school and summer camp groups with advance notice* 

Outreach Programs

Bring the Marshall Steam Museum to you-  virtually or in-person! Using crafts, stories and historical objects, students participate in interactive discussions and hands-on activities that encourage creativity, critical thinking, movement and play. In-person outreach programs are available on a case by case basis due to the current pandemic.
