School Programs

Grey Roots offers programming that grabs young people’s interest and imagination. Our popular programs are designed to fit curriculum needs in an atmosphere that is both engaging and educational.  In addition to our 40,000 square foot museum with its 7 exhibit galleries, we have a living history site - Moreston Heritage Village.  Many of our programs such as Pioneer Life and School Days are held in the village. All programs offer hands-on learning opportunities. We’re happy to work with teachers to adapt our programs.

En Français

Pour les professeurs de l'immersion française, de français langue seconde, ou des écoles francophones, nous sommes fiers de vous offrir la majorité de nos programmes en français.

Teachers are always admitted free at Grey Roots!

We encourage all qualified teachers and principals to visit Grey Roots free of charge to gain a better understanding of our programs. (Extra guests are required to pay admission fees.) Please call ahead to ensure a staff member is available to discuss our programs with you.
