Experience the artistry and craftsmanship of America prior to the Industrial Revolution in the DAR Museum, which includes two galleries with permanent and changing exhibitions, as well as thirty-one period rooms which reflect a wide range of time and place. Programs for public and private schools and homeschoolers are offered Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. All programs are free, but reservations are required at least two weeks in advance, with a minimum of 5 and maximum of 30 students. An adult chaperone must be provided for every five students. School self-guides are also available in lieu of tour. For school program information or reservations, please call the Curator of Education at (202) 879-3240 or email museum@dar.org. The Patterns and Shapes in Quilts program for Grades K - 3 is an engaging, interactive program, in which students use quilts in the collection to learn both math and history. The program focuses on object-based learning following national standards. The Colonial Traveling Trunk for Grades K - 8 is an extension of the school programs. The trunk includes five lessons that will immerse students in the social and cultural history of Colonial America.
