Museums Alive!


The Figge and other cultural institutions in the Quad Cities know it’s not always easy for teachers to take students on field trips. To ensure students have the opportunity to experience community educational programs, four cultural institutions designed an outreach program to bring engaging educational presentations to the classroom. Schools and youth groups that book Museums Alive! will enjoy one-hour presentations by four of the six participating institutions. This program is based on staff availability, so please don’t delay in booking this popular program!

Each one-hour Museums Alive! presentation is a fun, educational, interactive experience for students. All four presentations can be scheduled for one day or over several days, depending on the time requirements of your program. Sessions can be scheduled for the full hour or as back-to-back ½ hour interfaces in order to serve larger groups (15-25 students per session; two ½-hour sessions can serve up to 50 students!) Teachers should be prepared to assist children with activities presented in each Museums Alive! session. At least one adult volunteer/parent should be present in the classroom at all times during a Museums Alive! presentation who can assist students and/or presenter as necessary. Presenters will arrive at least 15 minutes before their scheduled

Museums Alive! can come to your school's classroom, intersession or after school program.
Fee: $320; an additional $10/visit mileage charge (total $40) is assessed for organizations outside the Quad Cities
