trunk_tidbitThe Exploring History trunk program is a part of the Museum’s education outreach services. The program is designed to serve as an additional resource to help local educators bring history into the classroom and helps to create a unique and challenging learning environment that enhances a traditional classroom experience.

The first of several trunks to be developed as part of the trunk program is Black Diamonds: Exploring Sheridan County’s Coal Mining Communities. This trunk contains hands-on historical black_diamonds_trunk_and_tidbitobjects, audiovisual materials, books, activities, and an educator’s guide.

The program is available year-round and there are no fees to borrow the trunk. The trunk can be checked out for a period of one week but must be reserved at least two weeks in advance. For more details on the Museum’s Exploring History trunk program or to reserve the trunk, contact the Curator of Museum Education.
