We invite you to bring your class, or send your students, to the Museum. Our little museum is the perfect place for an intimate journey into the past. We have a new program designed to make your students’ visit interesting, engaging and fun!
Explore the Tri-City area (Fremont, Newark, and Union City) from the settlement of Washington Township through the development of our cities.
All tours include highlights of the Museum’s long-term exhibits. We currently offer two types of tours:
The first type of tour is a docent-led class tour at the Museum, 190 Anza St., Fremont.
- Orientation about the city/town development of the Tri-City area using aerial photos
- Tour of the Museum using focus questions and the discovery method
- Activities related to settler/early town development life, including ‘cowboy corner’, ‘washing day’, and ‘fun times’
- $150 per class of 25-30 students
- One chaperone per every five students is required (no charge for chaperones)
- Two hour tour
- Tour times: Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:00am–12 noon & 12 noonm–2:00 pm, or by arrangement
Students are given an assignment to visit the Museum as part of a research project in which they discover more about the history of the Tri-City area.
