If you are a K-5th grade teacher, this program is for you and your students.
Copies of the award-winning book Maggie & Max at the Museum (K-2nd) or If Our Hotel Could Talk (3rd-5th) will be provided to each of your students free of charge.
Title 1 schools may also host a free presentation bringing the Museum and its history into your classroom. Museum volunteers use authentic Victorian items, historic photos and the books provided to your students to explore the development of Tampa, Henry Plant’s role in bringing the railroad to Tampa, the significance of the Tampa Bay Hotel during the Spanish-American War, and Gilded Age lifestyle. The presentation is free of charge, lasts 45-minutes and includes a question and answer period.
