Teacher Trunks




What are Teacher Trunks?


“Teacher Trunks” are boxes that contain a variety of real and reproduction historic artifacts and documents. Each trunk will focus on a particular era or event in history. The items in the trunks will be used for hands-on learning in the classroom.


Teacher Trunks are available for teachers at any school or homeschool organization to rent from the museum!
