PODs: Programming on Demand
A new way to experience the Springfield Museums. PODs are field trips for families, friends, and small groups. Customize a field trip to the Museums for your group of five to 30 people. Children and adults will participate in up to three of our hour-long curriculum-based school programs. Mix and match science, art, history and Seuss!
Field trips require a two week minimum advanced notice.
Dr. Seuss Program Packs
Several Dr. Seuss presentations are available for teachers, educators, and parents to purchase to enhance their literacy lessons. Each themed lesson includes a short museum tour and multiple interactive curriculum-based activities based on the work of Dr. Seuss. Available as Powerpoint presentations that can be converted to Google Slides.
Learning resources for students, educators and parents. Supplement a lesson or explore a new topic with our QUAD Connections videos. Join our Museum Educators as they journey through the galleries and exhibits, sharing insights and conducting experiments and activities. Videos are free to use and repost on remote/digital learning sites.
