Our school-based education programs seek to connect the past with the present through interactive lessons and hands-on activities that help students develop a sense of place and community. Our programs are intended to provide a local view of broader themes and events in American society.
Please email us if you would like to discuss program options and costs for your school or class.
Do you love to play games, solve puzzles, explore, decipher codes, geocache, follow maps, hunt for treasure, or learn about local history? Our History Hunts are perfect for extra credit for history class, scout troops, family fun day, team building/group dynamics, seniors, and anyone who wants to have a blast!
Are you looking for an internship position? Whether you are interested in public history, museum collections, education, or digital resources, the New Castle Historical Society is a great place to learn about the skills necessary to work in a museum. Internships at the Society are challenging educational experiences designed for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students. Working alongside staff members in a tutorial arrangement, interns gain valuable skills and training in museum practice, archival administration, arts administration, and historical scholarship.
Every effort is made to match the skills and interests of prospective interns with the needs and priorities of the institution overall. While internships are unpaid, many students earn academic credit for their experience.
