The Churchill County Museum is dedicated to lifelong learning. Its education programs are designed for audiences ranging from children to seniors. From school tours to lecture series, the museum strives for quality educational programming.
Much of the children’s programming revolves around the Discovery Room at the museum, where hands-on learning is the norm. Currently, we have a host of activities revolving around the Lincoln Highway Exhibit. Children can cruise along roads in Model T’s, build their own city, or learn about Henry Ford.
School tours and special programs are offered throughout the year. Guided tours by trained docents are available upon request. Cooperative programming with the Churchill County Library reinforces our community’s commitment to literacy.
Adult education can take the form of a lecture series offered in the spring and fall. Guest lectures from around the state speak on various topics. The lectures are FREE to the public and refreshments always follow! Click HERE to view the flyer for our latest lecture series.
We also have programs such as our Block-of-the-Month Lunch offered on the 3rd Wednesday of the month throughout 2018. This year, participants will create rows featuring curves for their own quilt. A nominal fee is charged for materials and instruction; CCMA members’ fees are discounted. Our quilting series start at the beginning of each year.
