School Trips

The Museum is currently closed in response to COVID-19 and our upcoming expansion. We plan to offer virtual opportunities for schools beginning in September 2020 and hope to resume field trips with small temporary exhibition series in January 2021 in the Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ atrium. Check back here in August for information about what virtual opportunities and field trips will entail and how to book.

In the meantime, please explore our virtual tours and survivor testimonies.

The virtual tour playlist includes a 48-minute video of the full museum exhibition, as well as twelve 5-minute videos of the different sections. It may be repetitive to use both formats for classes. We recommend choosing the format that best fits with your curriculum and timeframe, whether showing one longer, all-encompassing video, or using each shorter video to introduce a lesson on that topic. You can find discussion questions for most of the videos by expanding the description.
