Educators, pardon our dust! Our China Hall is currently disassembled. The artifacts will reappear as part of the Cyrus Tang Hall of China, a permanent exhibition scheduled to open by May 22, 2015. Feel free to contact us at with any questions. 

Looking to engage your students in deep learning at the Museum? Our Student Programs offer teachers and students a way to explore a specific topic and practice scientific process skills through hands-on investigations and immersive experiences on-site.

Unless otherwise noted, Student Programs are 2 hours and 30 minutes long (30 minutes for lunch) and include activities in our classrooms and specific exhibitions. A maximum of 35 students may be registered for a Student Program. Student Program Pre-registration is required online. To learn more about the programs offered for your group, visit:
