History on the Move

History on the Move is our award winning mobile museum and classroom geared for students in second through fifth grades. All Saginaw County public, charter and private schools are eligible to host History on the Move free of charge. We can accommodate up to six classrooms a day with each class engaging in a 50 minute hands-on program. If your school has more than six classrooms interested in participating in our History on the Move program we can schedule your school for additional days. 

To meet our patron needs, the semi-truck trailer is wheelchair accessible and it includes a lift. ​
