The Museum and Cultural Center at 5ive Points offers several programming options for our public, private, and home school communities throughout the Ocoee Region and beyond. Our educational programs are designed to meet TN State Social Studies standards. If you do not see a program that fits your needs, don’t hesitate to contact us, and we will be happy to work with you to create a program that will.
So much fun you hardly notice your learning! Through hands-on learning, students can look to the past and make our history come alive.
Our field trips combine a tour of exhibits, a trunk presentation, and a craft. Each tour allows for customization. Contact us today to create the perfect tour to pair with your curriculum. Have you recently toured our exhibits? We offer trunk only shows that include a trunk presentation and a craft.
