School Programs

Hands on Heritage - The Museum is widely recognized for quality educational programs developed in collaboration with teachers. Interactive and engaging programs are offered at the Museum and the Maritime Discovery Centre. Opportunities to discover Port Alberni and Provincial History, from First Nations Culture and Pioneer experiences to Forestry and Maritime heritage our programs address many of the prescribed learning outcomes of the Social Studies Curriculum for grades Kindergarten through to Grade 12. Our series of core programs is offered each year, all year, so teachers can incorporate them into long term lesson planning. In addition, each year we offer seasonal school programs which interpret our temporary exhibits or relate to seasonal themes. The grade levels and curriculum links of these programs will vary with the changing themes of the exhibits.
