Call to Educators!

The Spurlock Museum Education Section will be updating its school information booklet over the summer. The booklet gives information about our tours, programs, special exhibits and special events. If you would like to be on the list to receive an email version of the booklet in August, send your email address to Kim Sheahan at If you have suggestions for improving the booklet (e.g. there is information you wanted but couldn't find), let Kim know that, too.
