This article is an archived article written by Kevin Geary, Curator of Education, and published in the Grand Haven Tribune
Museums are excellent educational tools which service a wide range of community members, from pre-schoolers to senior citizens. Museums, as well as libraries and other arts organizations, offer a variety of programs and services that make it a partner in learning. The Tri-Cities Historical Museum, which serves the communities of Grand Haven, Ferrysburg, Spring Lake, Grand Haven Township, and Spring Lake Township, is an example of how museums work effectively with other community partners to provide quality learning opportunities for local residents and visitors alike.
Partnering with local school districts to teach students is a key function of any museum. At the Tri-Cities Historical Museum, we accommodate students and teachers interested in a variety of topics.
