From Our Museum to Your School

K-8 School Outreach Program

The Custom House Maritime Museum is pleased to launch a K-8 school outreach program designed to bring the museum’s educational programming outside of museum walls and into schools.

The program is one hour, includes interactive hands-on activities, demonstrations, songs, and more. Educators can select from a wide variety of topics relating to maritime and U.S. history including “The Sailor and his Ship”, “The Revolutionary War Soldier”, and “The Local Tavern” and many more.

Please contact or 978-462-8681 for more information and schedule a visit to your school. This program is supported by the Partnership Grant Program of the Essex Heritage National Area.
