Educational Programs For Students

School TOURs

Students enjoy a tour through the museum stopping at several stations to experience a hand on activity that brings the artifacts in the Collection to life.  School tours can be scheduled by contacting the museum.

Fall After School Program

In fall, the Wray Museum offers an after-school program for children in the 3rd through 6th grade. These programs were created to increase public awareness of the Wray Museum and give students a much more hands-on experience that is not available during regular hours.

2018 After School Program for 3rd - 6th  students

American settlers kept pushing westward behind an ever moving frontier. Into wild country went hunters, trappers, surveyors, and homesteaders. Take a step back in time and learn about the pioneer years on the Great Plains. Participants will learn about the Cheyenne, Arapahoe, and Sioux cultures; follow the cattle drives out of Texas; learn how to trap and identify animals; understand the daily life and chores of the homestead; and learn about the Great War. The sessions will be held on Mondays from 4:00 to 5:30 PM. Students can register for one or all of the sessions. There is no fee for the program but pre-registration is requested. 2018 Registration Form
