The Springfield Museums’ utilizes inquiry-based learning and hands-on activities to deliver a full day of engaging experiences. At our unique and interdisciplinary campus, educators are given the opportunity to combine art, history, science and Seuss into one memorable field trip for their students. We offer school programs for all grades and interest levels in the D’Amour Museum of Fine Arts, the George Walter Vincent Smith Art Museum, the Lyman & Merrie Wood Museum of Springfield History, Springfield Science Museum and the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum. All of our programs reinforce critical thinking and observation skills, help students prepare for standardize testing, and link directly to the Massachusetts State Curriculum Frameworks.
