Outreach for School Groups

 

The museum offers many outreach programs for schools or other groups and organizations. This includes many of our most popular in-museum programs as well as some offered only as outreach programs. All outreach is free of charge and the Education Department will travel anywhere in the State of Arkansas. 

Old State House Museum School Bus Fund

Schools can now apply for an Old State House Museum School Bus Fund mini-grant to help pay for student field trips to the museum. Although admission to the museum and associated outreach programs are free, we recognize there are costs associated with bringing students to the Old State House Museum. Through the generosity of the Old State House Museum Associates and the Arkansas State House Society, we are able to offer funding for schools to visit the Old State House Museum during the 2016-2017 school year. For more information on the School Bus Fund, click here.
