Education Overview

Dear Educator,

I am pleased to introduce you to what the Virginia War Museum Education Department has to offer! Our presentations are thematic in nature and provide students and educators with programs that meet multiple Standards of Learning requirements. We achieve this by integrating visual arts, multi-media, hands-on learning, and critical thinking exercises. These programs are offered on the museum's premises or at a site of your preference.

Here are a few comments recently made about the museum's educational programs:

A comment made by a middle school teacher on our Holocaust Program:

The subject matter is critically important and should be disseminated as widely as possible.
The Virginia War Museum is to be commended for its efforts in this area.

A comment made by an elementary school teacher on our Soldier's Heritage Program:

It [the program] was age appropriate and kept their interest.

On this section of the site you will find a complete listing of educational programs, fees, and program pre-visit and post-visit materials. Thank you for considering the Virginia War Museum to meet your American military history needs.
