Maymont’s 100-acre classroom offers unique learning opportunities to incorporate into your planning for the school year. Our environmental educators offer exciting, hands-on adventures that get students up-close and personal with the wonders of the natural world. Students can also discover the fascinating world of the Gilded Age and learn about the lives of the new millionaire class in America as well as those of the working class in a period of dramatic economic, social and technological change. All on-site programs meet Virginia’s Standards of Learning for either Science or History and Social Science.
Learning opportunities are also available for pre-school classes, after-school programs and homeschool programs. Educators can come to you, too! Outreach Animal Encounters, with birds, insects or reptiles, are offered Monday through Friday during regular school hours.
