International Classroom

Learn more about world cultures and living traditions from international scholars, educators, and artists. Since 1987, the International Classroom Program has connected K-12 communities with global learning opportunities at the Museum and in their very own classrooms. The International Classroom workshops support the global citizenship skills of learners of all ages through the sharing of world languages, multiple perspectives, intercultural communication, and appreciation for cultural diversity. Through interactive activities and thematic discussions, students gain knowledge, skills, and awareness of our increasingly interconnected global society.
