K-12 Programs

Bring your students to the Union Pacific Museum for an exciting active learning experience! All of our programs are designed to foster critical thinking skills that students can apply in many other parts of their lives. Programs are available for elementary, middle, and high school classes and are tailored to meet the needs of each grade.  

Our school programs are designed to foster critical and historical thinking. If you have any questions about how they might fit into your curriculum, give us a call at 712-329-8307.
