Education Overview

At the Philadelphia History Museum, history is more than a subject studied at school or read about in textbooks. With insightful and stimulating curriculum-based programs and dynamic content-rich lessons — as well as teachers workshops and resources — the Philadelphia History Museum liberates the story of the city from the textbook page and challenges students to consider the world around them and the stories of their city in new ways.
