Testimonials copy
My colleagues and I recently took our 6th grade students on a field trip to the Erie Art Museum in conjunction with a unit of study. It was truly one of the best field trips we have ever taken. The students were highly engaged in a variety of hands on activities that involved interacting with the art and even creating art themselves. In addition, the team at the art museum even sent us a fun pre-visit lesson. I am definitely planning on a return visit with next year’s students!

I’m so glad we took the risk and came to the Erie Art Museum! I’d never visited before, and we were surprised and pleased with all the different activities. The Museum staff knew just how to handle our 2nd graders and gave them lots to touch and think about. The kids loved it!
