Looking for a new way to engage your students? The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley offers unique opportunities for students of all ages to explore the culture of the Shenandoah Valley region. Choose the focus of your student tour—Art, Gardens, History—and we’ll take it from there. The program can include discussion-based tours and age-appropriate hands-on activities. Our galleries and offerings are always changing. Learn more about the exhibitions currently on view.
