The Fort Nisqually Foundation offers a scholarship program for students to help develop an interest in history from an early age.
Educational Tours For Classes
Step out of the classroom and into the Pacific Northwest in 1855. Experience what life was like in a time of trade in Washington Territory. The education staff at Fort Nisqually Living History Museum offers high quality educational programs and tours for all school grade levels.
The Fort Nisqually Foundation realizes that economic conditions prevent some schools from participating in field trips to Fort Nisqually. This program allows individual teachers to request funding (up to $200 per classroom) to cover the cost of the education program as well as transportation costs from the school to Fort Nisqually and back.
"Visiting Fort Nisqually and using the curriculum artifacts make history come to life for students. They light up, question, wonder, and verbalize their understanding in ways that don’t happen with just a text book. Over the years, I have taken my classes and it never fails to amaze me the questions they ask, and appreciation for people who lived during the 1800s in Washington State."
