K-12 School Groups
Come visit us for memorable learning adventures! Explore the museum through a factory tour and workshops designed for students in the public schools. Museum visits address the core content in the Kentucky public schools and the academic standards in the Indiana public schools.
Factory and Museum Tours for K-12 Students
On their tour of APH, students can see the production of braille publications, the recording of Talking Books, a demonstration of educational materials, and experience the exhibits and interactive displays in the Museum.
Each tour is tailored to suit the time each group has available, the age level of the students, their educational interests, and any special needs.
For younger groups we recommend a one-hour visit. Allow an hour and a half or longer for older students.
Museum Workshops for K-12 Students
Teachers may choose to bring their students one of our workshops designed specifically for school groups. Workshops focus on some aspect of the Museum collections and involve hands-on experiential learning.
Correlations to the Kentucky Program of Studies and Core Content and to the Indiana Academic Standards are listed at the end of each program description.
