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. Children and adults alike can try their hand at telegraphy, tapping out messages in Morse code, or type on a typewriter, recalling the days of old when the clatter of the typewriter was heard in every office.
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 lecture series offered in the spring and fall, or programs like our Build a Block Quilting Lunch offered on the 3rd Wednesday of the month throughout 2017, where participants can piece and quilt their own lap quilt. A nominal fee is charged for materials and instruction. Members receive a discount on their fees.
