The Traveling Museum at the African American Heritage Museum
of Southern New Jersey
The African American Museum is committed to bringing its resources directly to the community. Special programs with curriculums tailored to children and adults of all ages are available to schools and non-profit organizations. Often accompanied by the museum's founder, the irrepressible Mr. Ralph Hunter, the traveling museum is entertaining and interactive. The museum even offers a student program which will train your school's own students to guide younger students through the museums displays.
We encourage teacher and student participation with our presentations. One of the methods we have been developing is "Student Docents"-- that is, having older students select items from the museum's catalog to explain to their classmates during the exhibition. This makes for a uniquely interactive and successful format, as well as providing those Student Docents with a great research and speaking opportunity.
An honorarium is requested for presenting the program (call to arrange). Approximately 1500 sq. ft. is required to accommodate the artifacts, which include four tables and three easels. On the day of the program we need volunteers to assist in unloading and loading the vehicle.
