The National Museum strives to create a unique learning environment that enhances classroom activities and provides rich experiences that spark a passion for lifelong learning in the minds of young people. As a vital part of this process, teachers are our most valuable partners, and we are committed to creating meaningful and dynamic teaching resources for them. Through our educational programming, collections, and exhibitions, the National Museum hopes to stimulate students’ and educators’ curiosity about the rich lives and varied activities of America’s diverse peoples and cultures. We ultimately hope that these lessons will heighten students’ interest in their own community and background.

If there are ways in which our resources can better complement classroom teaching—whether it is educational content or in the development of teaching materials—we would be interested in hearing ideas and suggestions. Contact the Education Office at 213.830.5601, or via e-mail at
