School Programs at Garvies Point Museum & Preserve

Museum and preserve resources are used to present specialized one-hour museum school programs. Programs can be used to make basic curriculum or enrichment needs, either when taken alone or in combination. These are geared to the ability level and special needs of your class.

Planning and pre-visit materials are provided. These have been designed to integrate programs into classroom activities. Customized programs and pre-visit consultations are available upon request when schedules permit.

Programs are available year-round Tuesday through Friday. Special arrangements can be made for Saturdays for groups such as scout groups and science clubs. Reservations must be made by telephone in advance. Prepayment of $45.00 per program is expected. For reservations call the education desk at (516) 571-8011.

Most programs can be given simultaneously, so that one class can be having a program while another class is having a different program, allowing classes to alternate programs. In this way, several classes or a grade level can be accommodated on one day and classes can customize their visit by taking advantage of several related programs.

Picnic Facilities are available for lunch. Lunches may be stored in bags in the museum cloakroom. There are limited facilities for eating in the museum in the outer exhibit hall overlooking the preserve.

A good selection of souvenirs, minerals, Native American crafts, books and other educational items is offered for sale in the museum giftshop.
