Teacher Training for Footsteps Through Time

The Education Department invites all educators to preview the exhibit and learn how it can become an important part of the life sciences, social sciences, language, and visual arts resources for you and your students. The 7,000 sq. foot permanent exhibit features artifacts that can be touched, manipulated, compared, and used as sources for many styles of teaching and learning.

There are several ways to preview the exhibit before you schedule a tour for your students:

Join us for a teacher training exhibit walk-through. A museum educator and a curator of Physical Anthropology will give you a guided tour of the exhibit. Space is limited to 40 teachers per session. Check the Calendar section of this website for upcoming dates.

You may also visit the Museum on your own during weekday afternoons until 4:00 p.m. These informal visits must be scheduled in advance so that one of the education staff will be available to explain the exhibit. Please call (619) 239-2001 to schedule a time. (Guests and family members are charged regular admission.)

You may also visit on a weekend. Your admission will be free (guests and family members pay regular admission charges), but you will have to be registered in advance. We will not be able to extend free admission without advance registration for weekend teacher visits. Although there will not be an educator to escort you through the exhibit, educational materials will be left at the Museum's admission counter for your use. Call (619) 239-2001 to register.
