We want students to find a connection to the history of Amesbury and strengthen their sense of place. – John Mayer, Executive Director, ACM
With input from Amesbury teachers, the museum has developed the curriculum, A Museum Without Walls. The museum offers a complimentary tour of the millyard. Please contact us to discuss your interests. We are developing a working committee of local educators to further develop this program. Teachers are encouraged to contact the museum to discuss their needs and interests.
Curriculum, A Museum without Walls
In 2017, with support from the Amesbury Education Foundation Inc. and input from six local teachers, the museum has developed a history curriculum – A Museum Without Walls.
Walking tours, The Amesbury Millyard
Museum staff and volunteers can provide an hour-long tour of the Amesbury millyard. Please plan and schedule your visit with enough notice to be sure your needs can be accommodated. Tour size is limited to 25 students.
The museum invites teachers to contact the museum and explore ways to include a classroom visit in support of local history lessons.
Teacher workgroup and steering committee
The museum has created a steering committee to review the curriculum, develop complimentary teaching materials and activities. Please let us know if you are interested in joining this group and helping us further develop our programs.
