TRAVELING HISTORY TRUNKS
{alt}

Our volunteer docents meet with school groups  visiting the museum to share information about our exhibitions and specific topics. We have ten history trunks exploring ten different themes. The Oregon Trail, Early Settlers, and Kalapuya trunks are particularly popular. If you'd like to delve into any of these fascinating trunks with your students, please inquire when you schedule your group tour.
