Offered At

Wyckoff House Museum

The Wyckoff House Museum preserves, interprets, and operates New York City’s oldest building and it’s surrounding 1.5 acres of farmland. Through innovative educational and farm-based programs we build cultural and agricultural connections within our community, emphasizing immigration, family, food, and community through history. During field trips to the farmhouse, students learn about the history of the site through inquiry, exploration, and hands-on activities.

Check out our new virtual learning experiences and school-based programs. Currently we are offering three types of program options:

  • 45 minute virtual programs, offered via Zoom or Google Meet.
  • Socially-distanced in-person experiences at the museum for schools within walking distance.
  • In-person programs at your school facilitated by a Wyckoff Educator.

Contact programs@wyckoffmuseum.org to discuss how we can modify our program offerings to best serve your students.

We are in school district 18.
