Educational Programs

Educational programs at Historic Deerfield are based on the belief that authentic objects—old houses, works of art, the landscape—are powerful instruments of learning. Close experience with real objects is an important part of all of our educational programs. 

We also believe that an interdisciplinary approach to art and history is the best way to learn. As a museum of New England history and art, we draw on these disciplines, and many others, in an attempt to understand and teach about the past. 

We offer educational programs designed for learners of all ages: family programs, K-12 school tours, workshops and classes for adults. 

School group tours are arranged by calling Claire Carlson, Education Program Coordinator, at 413-775-7217 or

We look forward to your visit!
