Educational Programs For Students
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 the Fall, the Wray Museum offers an after-school program for children in 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.
2023 After School Program for 3rd through 6th Grade Students
Kenny Rogers recorded a song about nostalgia of a small hometown called “Twenty Years Ago.”
It's been a long time since I walked through this old town. But, oh, how the memories start to flow and there's the old movie house, they finally closed it down. You could find me there every Friday night twenty years ago.
I worked the counter at the drugstore down the street. But nobody's left there I would know On Saturday mornings that's where all my friends would meet. You'd be surprised what a dime would buy twenty years ago.
All my memories from those days come gather round me. What I'd give if they could take me back in time. Oh, it almost seems like yesterday, where do the good times go? Life was so much easier twenty years ago.
Participants will explore the pop culture of the country and what was happening in Wray from 1893 to 1993 at twenty-year intervals The sessions will be held on Mondays from 3:30 to 5:00 PM. Students can register for one or all of the sessions. There is no fee for the program but pre-registration is requested.
