Bring in new perspectives.
Give your students an unforgettable experience beyond the classroom. Designed for all ages (K‑12), our school programs offer students the chance to engage with stories and participate in dialogue on different human rights themes.
Onsite programs allow students to explore the inspiring architecture of the Museum and engage with interactive exhibits while learning about human rights with our staff.
Virtual programs bring the Museum to you wherever your students are. While taking students on a journey through the Museum, our staff engage students in discussion and activities about human rights.
Explore from home
Our Explore the Museum from home and COVID‐19 – Learn at home pages are always available to support human rights education. Here you will find prerecorded tours, access to our web stories and other resources for your classroom.
How to book your school
Review school programs and tours
Before you make your request, take some time to explore our different programs and tours to see what’s the best fit for your classroom. Each program and tour deals with different age‐appropriate subject matter.
Submit a Request
After you’ve found a program or tour you’re interested in, you will need to complete the Education Program Booking Request form. Once your form has been submitted, we’ll contact you to acknowledge we’ve received your request. If you have questions or need help with the form, call us for virtual programs at 204–289-2253 or 204–289-2000. For onsite programs, dial 204–289‑2203.
Confirm a Visit Date
In your request form, you’ll list your ideal visit dates which we will review to see if we can accommodate. If your first choice isn’t available, we will see if we can accommodate your second and third choices. Once a date is set, you’ll receive an email confirming your registration, along with a School Booking Contract form.
Sign the School Booking Contract form
Once you’ve received the School Booking Contract form, please sign and return it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org for virtual programs and email@example.com for onsite programs. You can also fax it at 204–289-2001. Please note that your booking is not confirmed until we have received this form.
Prepare for Your Visit
Now that your booking is confirmed, you’ll want to prepare for your visit. Approximately four weeks before your visit, we will send you an information package by email to help you get ready.
Teachers and adult student‐helpers play an important role in helping us ensure our school programs run smoothly. We will need your help to keep the group together, and to ensure that rules are being followed and behaviour is appropriate. Please also let us know in advance if there any special needs we can accommodate.
Please note the required adult‐to‐student ratios for a school visit:
- K–6 groups: 1 adult for every 10 students (e.g. 36 students = 4 adults)
- Grades 7–12 groups: 1 adult for every 15 students (e.g. 36 students = 3 adults)
Thanks to generous grants from the Asper Foundation and Larry & Judy Tanenbaum & Family, school programs are free for Canadian students. If you are visiting from outside of Canada, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for virtual programs and email@example.com for onsite programs to discuss payment options.
Please provide your cancellation notice in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org for virtual programs or email@example.com for onsite programs. If you need to cancel your group reservation, please advise us at least five (5) business days prior to the scheduled date of the tour.
Any cancellation with less than five business days’ notice will put your school on a 1‑year probation, preventing it from accessing complimentary or subsidized tickets.
In case of inclement weather, this policy does not apply.
