Educational Programs For Students

School TOURs

Students enjoy a tour through the museum stopping at several stations to experience a hand on activity that brings the artifacts in the Collection to life.  School tours can be scheduled by contacting the museum.

Fall After School Program

In fall, the Wray Museum offers an after-school program for children in the 3rd through 6th grade. These programs were created to increase public awareness of the Wray Museum and give students a much more hands-on experience that is not available during regular hours.

2022 After School Program for 3rd through 6th Grade Students

If We Live in the Present, Why Should We Care About the Past? Do you enjoy putting together a puzzle or figuring out what came first? Historians use timelines to illustrate change over time, make connections between important people and events, show a large span of time, or focus on a particular interval or stretch of years. Timelines bring together many elements of history: people, places, and events. Putting all of those elements in chronological order is like putting together pieces of a historical puzzle. Join us as we explore our hometown history and how it has shaped our town today. The sessions will be held on Mondays from 3:30 to 4:30 PM. Students can register for one or all of the sessions. There is no fee for the program but pre-registration is requested. Registration Form

History Take Out, was designed to allow students in the 3rd and 4th grade to explore artifacts, historic photographs, culture cards, and a map of Colorado.
