Bring the museum to your classroom to enhance the teaching of Washington State history and supplement your classroom studies. Each Portable Museum Trunk or Kit contains artifacts, a slide show, documents, audio, and an extensive Teacher’s Manual with EALR-aligned lesson plans and activities adapted to meet individual class needs. Lesson plans target different grade levels depending on the trunk topic, but trunk contents are suitable for all ages of K-12 students. Contact Alyssa Matthews, Youth Programs and Scheduling Coordinator, at 206 324 1126 Ext. 113 for more information.

Please note that there are a limited quantity of trunks and kits for each topic; many topics are in high demand throughout the school year. Teachers are encouraged to make rental reservations in advance (a minimum of two weeks). All portable museums must be returned as scheduled; short-notice rental extensions cannot always be accommodated and late returns will result in a fine of $25 per day.

Cost: The cost of a 2-week Portable Museum Trunk rental is $50; each additional week costs $25. Portable Museum Kits are $30 for a two-week rental and $15.00 for additional weeks.

Scholarships: A reduced rental fee of $10 for Portable Museum Trunks is available for schools with 40% or more of the student population on the Free and Reduced Lunch Program. (Fines and rental extension fees still apply.)
