Pamplin Historical Park is a destination of choice for teachers and educational tour operators from across the country. Our education staff has designed a variety of school programs based on interactive, participatory learning techniques in accordance with approved Virginia Standards of Learning.
“Your guides and museum educators are absolutely wonderful. This was our second trip to the park and both years have been great. We’re already booked for our trip for next June.”
