The American Writers Museum offers field trips for students in grades K-12, where young scholars can learn about the cultural and historical significance of writing in America. Students also learn about writing styles, writing habits of authors, and new perspectives on writing—from the practical to the creative. 

The American Writers Museum now offers online curriculum for classrooms that cannot participate in an in-person field trip. Visit our virtual My America and Frederick Douglass: Agitator exhibit extensions to find educational material and instructions for students working remotely. Learn more about virtual field trips here.

For field trips being booked by a Tour Operator, or for undergraduate or graduate students, please see our Group Tours.
