Campus Martius Museum

Workshops and museum tours for educational groups are available year round. These programs supplement early Marietta and post-Revolutionary War frontier history for students in grades 3-8, though programs can be adjusted to any age level. Programs are designed to help schools meet the Ohio Academic Content Standards. We can “customize” any of the programs to fit your time schedule. They are hands-on, interactive programs.

Appalachian Migration

If you want to focus some of the time on Appalachian Migration into Ohio (1850-1970) we will focus on these areas. Besides the history, we will also address the issues in parenthesis.

  • Assembly line (hands-on activity which shows the advantages and disadvantages of specialized work as opposed to mass production.)
