Educational Traveling Trunks


Our trunks are filled with hands-on objects, photos, reproduced documents, teachers’ guides and more!  For an added adventure, invite one of our costumed interpreters to come out and make the presentation come alive. 

Our traveling trunks are available to area schools and organizations.  The trunks are free and may be checked-out for a one-month period.
