The Dartmouth Heritage Museum aims to offer a number of educational programs for school children.  These programs are designed to:

  • Meet the needs of Learners within current provincial curriculum outcomes;
  • Complement the museum’s temporary exhibits and collection;
  • Foster an understanding of the importance of preserving our heritage; and
  • Help students understand the past so that they may recognize how it affects the present and the future.
