The museum will be closed for renovations starting 11/1/2021 until late February 2022. We are unable to offer in-person field trips during this time span and encourage you to schedule a Virtual Field Trip (VFT) offered via Zoom. (We will do our best to support video platforms besides Zoom.)
Featured Exhibit: "Finding Light in the Darkness" - Grades 6 and up. Through artifacts and stories from local Holocaust survivors, students will begin to understand the hi of the Holocaust and that their choices make a difference. A knowledgeable docent will highlight key stories, artifacts, images, and pivotal events featured in the Holocaust Center's exhibit. Docents can tailor the material to your class. The minimum time commitment is 45 minutes.
Recommended: Request a Teaching Trunk or Artifact Kit to use in the classroom at the same time as your virtual field trip. The docent will reference the replica artifacts in the trunk/kit, and encourage the students to explore the physical artifacts throughout the virtual field trip.
FAQs & Policies
Please submit a Field Trip request 2 weeks in advance for virtual and at least 3 week in advance for in-person (with in-person projected to begin again in March 2022). At this time, we are not scheduling field trips for schools/groups outside of the Northwest. Please visit the Association of Holocaust Organizations' (AHO) membership database to a local center or museum near you.
The Virtual Field Trip program is made possible thanks to the University District Rotary Club and the Alfred & Tillie Shemanski Testamentary Trust.
