In-School Programs

Bring the New-York Historical experience into your classroom

Every in-school program features a New-York Historical educator bringing replicas of artifacts, paintings, and  documents into your classroom to illuminate the stories of our collective past. In the process, students develop their critical and historical thinking skills while expanding their understanding of the complicated story of the United States.

You can book lessons in two ways:

  • In-Depth Series: Multiple lessons connected by a major theme
  • One-off: A single lesson

*Note: Art of History must be booked as a series
