The Museum School at the Museums has been providing educational and cultural enrichment for people of all ages since 1918. The program began with studio art instruction and has expanded to include the areas of science, art history, creative writing, genealogy and history. The programs offered represent the rich and diverse resources and collections at the Museums and are led by dedicated staff and faculty. The Museum School is a place to learn, explore and let your imagination join your creative energies!

We have added a number of measures for your safety and the safety of others during the pandemic to help ensure ease of mind while attending classes.

At the Museum School of the Springfield Museums we believe in the power of life-long learning for all and strive to provide a safe, inclusive and constructive environment for everyone.
