Traveling Trunks

The Institute’s traveling trunks enrich classroom learning about the Revolutionary War through hands-on activities and analysis of documents and artifacts.

Each themed trunk contains high-quality reproduction clothing and artifacts as well as images of historical objects and documents for student investigation. Accompanying lesson plans may be adapted for elementary, middle or high school students.

Trunks are shipped directly to schools for a one-week period at no cost.

Reservations for the 2024-25 school year will be taken beginning Tuesday, March 19, 2024.
