Educational Outreach

MAC's mission of historic preservation, interpretation and cultural enrichment extends into the classroom and beyond with programs on local history that help teachers satisfy core curriculum standards.



MAC's Museum Education Programs

MAC's educational outreach programs are presented by Museum Educators who are experienced interpreters specially trained to work with students and community groups. MAC's outreach programs in local history are coordinated with many of New Jersey's Core Curriculum Standards, particularly in the areas of Social Studies, Language Arts and the Arts. A detailed correlation of each program with the core curriculum standards is available.
