Outreach

If your group is not part of the traditional public school group, you can also enjoy all the Old Colony History Museum has to offer. Our field trip programs are available to all groups including home-school groups, church groups, boy’s and girl’s clubs, and scout groups. But you don’t have to be in school–adult groups are welcome! Our goal is to fully utilize our collection in order to become a thriving regional center where visitors of all ages develop a lifelong love of learning and an enduring connection to the past. After all, this is your museum, we want to help you make the most of it.

Museums Without Walls

For those who cannot visit the museum themselves we offer Museum Without Walls where we come to you! This program features a live docent in the museum, with an iPad, giving a guided tour of the space, with a second set-up at the site, projecting a large image onto a screen for visitors to see in real-time. This live interaction allows for Q&A, spontaneous interactions, and a fulfilling experience without having to travel to our space. For more information or to schedule a program, give us a call at 508.822.1622.
