School Programs

The National Hellenic Museum  offers thematic School Programs that cover various aspects of Greek history and culture. School Programs are for grades Pre-K-12 and include a guided tour and an art activity. School Programs are booked at $5 per student. Though these programs are designed with schools in mind, they can be booked for any group of children. There must be at least 10 children in the group to qualify for any of the group rates listed below.
