From field trips to workshops to events, the Education Department at Landis Valley Village & Farm Museum is dedicated to perpetuating the museum's goal of preserving and interpreting the history and culture of the Pennsylvania Germans for generations to come.
Children and adults alike learn new skills, trades and crafts during multi-day summer camps and Summer Institute, as well as one-day workshops during the winter months. Hands-on History Days are fun for the younger set as they discover what life was like for children a century ago. Events like Civil War Days, Tales, Legends & Lore, and Harvest Days bring history to life for visitors of all ages.
The museum is a great destination for public and homeschool field trips as well, with optional programs that are tailored to Pennsylvania state and homeschool educational standards. Our education department also travels to schools and gives kids a close-up view of Pennsylvania German history in the convenience of their own classrooms.
Landis Valley also caters to scout groups, with programs that fulfill requirements for loops, pins and badges.
