Explore the Dawn of the Automotive Age at Auburn Heights.
Interested in a program, but not sure what works for your group? Fill out our simple program request form and our Director of Education will put together what she thinks will work best for your group and its needs. We are also happy to come to you and give a presentation to your teachers about what options are available from the Marshall Steam Museum for your students.
Programs at the Marshall Steam Museum focus on the history of transportation and the rise of the automobile in American life. Students are encouraged to draw comparisons between the past and the present, explore changes in motion and design, and to develop important critical thinking skills and a natural curiosity. Interactive activities, exhibits, and crafts help students broaden the scope of learning and explore science, technology, history, design, function and much more.
Outreach programs bring the Marshall Steam Museum to you. Using objects and historical images, students participate in interactive discussions and hands-on activities that encourage creativity, critical thinking and interdisciplinary learning.
These resources and ideas for collaborative projects can help enhance your visit to the Marshall Steam Museum. The resources are interdisciplinary with a strong emphasis on science, engineering, and social studies and are available to download. We look forward to your feedback.
The Marshall Steam Museum offers numerous opportunities for Scout groups of all ages. Consider booking one of our private field trips, invite us to one of your scout meetings, or even better, visit us on Steamin’ Day when the entire site comes alive with automobiles rides, train rides, demonstrations and more.
Learning is fun at any age! Adults, join us for workshops, tours, lectures or invite us to visit you or your group.

Most of our outreach programs, field trips, and even Steamin’ Days involve crafts using materials donated to us by our wonderful volunteers. Here are some ideas and instructions for our favorite projects so teachers and parents can do them with their kids at home or at school.
