Calling All K-12 Teachers!

We are launching an exciting new Virtual Field Trip Program here at the Richmond Museum of History and Culture. We offer grade specific tours for students aged K-12 as well as companion lesson materials for teacher use. Include RMHC in your distance-learning toolkit!

Our extensive teacher guides tie in museum content with relevant CA Content Standards in the areas of History and Social Sciences as well as Speaking and Learning. They include in-depth background information and hands-on activities for topics including (but not limited to) local pre-colonial cultures, the Spanish missionary period, WWII industries, and the Black Panther movement. Additionally, we have the capacity to work with you to tailor tour content to your class?s specific needs.?

We will be launching this program in January of 2021, please feel free to book now to guarantee your spot! Virtual field trips can be booked any time during school hours, Mondays through Thursdays. Please indicate your interest in scheduling a virtual field trip by filling out this google form, RMHC Field Trip Request Form.?
