Educational Programs

Educational Programming at Campus Martius and Ohio River MuseumsWorkshops and museum tours for educational groups are available year round, Monday through Friday. These programs supplement early Marietta and post-Revolutionary War frontier history for students in grades 3-8, though programs can be adjusted to any age level. Programs are designed to help schools meet the Ohio Academic Content Standards. We can “customize” any of the programs to fit your time schedule. They are hands-on, interactive programs.

Group Programs Available at Campus Martius Museum:

If you want to focus some of the time on Appalachian Migration into Ohio (1850-1970) we will focus on these areas. Besides the history, we will also address the issues in parenthesis.

Mini-Tours: Available only to schools not doing other programs. ($4 per student per one museum; $5 per student for both museums)

Educational programs are also available at the Ohio River Museum, located just one block from Campus Martius. Tour both museums for just $1 more or add tour & programs at both museums for just $3 more!
