Museum School Partnerships

The Museum’s Education staff works with you to create multi-visit informal learning experiences at your location and at the Museum to connect your goals and our resources.

School K-12 and Higher Education
Develop Common Core and 21st-Century Skills, supporting, reinforcing, and enhancing Common Core Learning Standards and college and university research. Thematic curricula address English Language Arts; Social Studies; Mathematics, Science, Technology; and the Arts for K-12, and art history, history, and earth and physical sciences for higher education.

Early Childhood Centers
Lay the groundwork for academic and social skills through an experiential curriculum.

Senior Centers
Promote lifelong learning within a framework that is responsive to your needs. We offer intergenerational partnerships through the Junior Docent program.

Community Centers
Provide enrichment and exposure opportunities for children and their families after school, on weekends, and during school vacations.

By engaging in a Partnership with the Hudson River Museum you build an enduring relationship for your institution and participants at every level. Partnerships vary in size and scope. For example:

3-Session Permanent Collection Partnership

  • Pre-visit at your site with a Museum educator
  • A Museum visit that consists of a tour or Planetarium show, and a hands-on Workshop
  • Post-visit at your site with a Museum educator
  • Professional Development for the participating teachers and/or administrators
  • A six-month Institutional Membership to the Museum for the families of all participating students and staff

Cost per grade (up to 2 classes/group): $1,200

Other Partnership Models

3-Sessions, based on a Changing Exhibition

    • Same outline as above

6-Sessions, incorporating work with a Teaching Artist as well as a Museum educator

10-Sessions incorporating work with a Teaching Artist and Museum educator and 2 Museum visits

Teaching a multi-disciplinary program and working in media related to the exhibitions, the artists progress beyond their previous work with families and integrate their programs with groups of older adults, community organizations, and museum-school partnerships.
