Five Oaks Museum is proud to be a valued local resource for educational materials based in community voices for K-12, college, and adult learners. View our Values-Based Learning Philosophy here.
The museum building is currently open for general visitors; however all field trips, group tours, and class visits at the museum are still unavailable at this time. These visits are one of our greatest joys and we look forward to the day we can welcome learners to the museum again. Please subscribe to our newsletter and select Educator Updates to be the first to know when these offerings become available! In the meantime, check out our downloadable learning materials, virtual class visits, Museum at (Our Place) mini exhibitions, and adult presentations.
