Public Square Program

The Museum of Education serves as a “public square”—a venue for open discussion and the examination of educational issues. Programs and exhibits are oriented for the professional educator-- preservice and inservice teachers. Opened to the public in 1977, our motto, drawn from an important 1930s educational project, is “being with adventurous company.”  When patrons walk through the doors or visit websites, the Museum invites them to learn about important people, events, and ideas, and to explore, to engage—to think how this information could make life better for their communities, for their students, and for themselves.
