Educational Programs

Educational programs at Historic Deerfield are based on the belief that experiencing authentic objects—old houses, works of art, the landscape—are powerful instruments of learning. We also believe that an interdisciplinary approach is the best way to learn. As a museum of New England history and art, we draw on these disciplines, and many others, in an attempt to understand and teach about the past. We offer educational programs designed for learners of all ages: family programs, K-12 school tours, workshops and classes for adults. Check out our programs below. Watch for upcoming workshops, classes and lectures on our Calendar of Events. We look forward to your visit! 

School group tours are arranged by calling Claire Carlson, Education Program Coordinator, at 413-775-7217 or
