The Chippewa Valley Museum has many resources for teachers, preschool through university.

  • You can arrange a class trip to the museum any weekday during the year. Call museum educator Karen Jorgenson at (715) 834-7871 for available services (docents, materials, etc.) and rates.

  • You can check out any of our history kits. We have more than two dozen different kits to help students learn about all sorts of different historical topics.

  • You can visit -- or even teach a class inside -- Sunnyview School, a rural one-room school on the museum grounds, open April-October.

  • You can visit the Glenn Curtis Smoot Library and Archives for research, or even bring a small class group for a research project if you arrange it ahead of time. Admission to the library is free. The library is open by arrangement during regular business hours (weekdays, 9-5). The library has substantial collections on the Ojibwe, Hmong, logging and lumbering, local industries and businesses, and the folk arts.

  • You can encourage your university students to come here. Any UW student with an I.D. can gain admission for $4.00. Any UW student completing a class project is admitted free.

  • A limited number of unpaid internships are available for university students. We often have projects in collections, education, programming, design, and marketing suitable for interns. Contact Carrie Ronnander, curator, for more information: c.ronnander@cvmuseum.com.
