The Marshall Steam Museum is currently undergoing exciting renovations! This means field trips and certain group tours to the museum are unavailable until early summer 2020. However, we can bring the museum to you! See our Outreach Programs for more information.

Programs at Auburn Heights focus on the history of transportation and the rise of the automobile in American life as well as the natural resources around us. Students are encouraged to draw comparisons between the past and the present, explore changes in motion and design, learn a little local history and, most of all, be curious! Interactive activities, exhibits, and crafts help students broaden the scope of learning and explore science, technology, history, design, function and much more. Field trips can be done in partnership with the Delaware State Parks.
*We are also happy to accommodate home school and summer camp groups with advance notice*
Bring the Marshall Steam Museum to you. Using crafts, stories and historical objects, students participate in interactive discussions and hands-on activities that encourage creativity, critical thinking, movement and play.
These resources and ideas for collaborative projects can help enhance your time with the Marshall Steam Museum. The resources are interdisciplinary with a strong emphasis on science, engineering, and social studies and are available to download. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or suggestions!
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! Join us for workshops, tours of the museum and the Auburn Heights mansion, lectures or invite us to visit you.
