Immersive Landis Valley Experiences
History is more relevent when it is experienced. Adults gain more appreciation for the work their ancestors did and children get inspired to try chores, games and crafts from a different time.
At Landis Valley, children and adults alike learn new skills, trades, and crafts during multi-day summer camps and periodic classes, as well as one-day trips and lectures. Hands-On History Days are fun for the younger set as they discover what life was like for children a century ago. Events like Civil War Days, and Harvest Days bring history to life for visitors of all ages.
The museum is a great destination for public and homeschool field trips as well, with optional programs that are tailored to Pennsylvania state and homeschool educational standards. Our education department also travels to schools and gives students a close-up view of Pennsylvania German history in the convenience of their own classrooms.
Landis Valley also caters to scout groups, with programs that fulfill requirements for loops, pins and badges.
