Natural History on the Move

Bring the museum to you!

Carnegie Museum of Natural History’s award winning outreach program has new programs presented in new ways—chosen by you!

Each program is designed to enhance and enrich science learning at your site, whether it’s in a classroom, scout meeting, afterschool program, senior center, fundraising event, or community festival. Every program is carefully tailored to the appropriate age level and, where appropriate, is aligned with national and Pennsylvania academic standards to help support your educational goals. Our programs are designed to be inclusive, resulting in a rewarding outcome for all learners of all ages. They can be adapted to community centers and hospital settings as well as other individual or group settings for those with physical or mental disabilities. We are happy to work with you to adapt our programs to the needs of your group.
