School Tours

Tate House Museum offers School Tours to help students better understand the social, political, and architectural history of Pre-Revolutionary 18th-century Maine. We encourage student groups of all ages to visit from third grade through college. A video and resource packet are available for instructor use prior to visiting to the museum.

Our School Program includes a tour of Tate House and a hands-on experience with the Tate Family Trunk Collection. The trunk is filled with reproductions of 18th century objects, similar to those that may have been used by the Tate family in the 1750s, 1760s, and 1770s. Students may examine, touch, and experiment with everything inside! 



To schedule a School Tour

Contact 207-774-6177 or info@tatehouse.org.
Based on availability. Chaperones and teachers are invited to accompany students free of charge. We recommend one adult per 10 students, with no more than 50 students per tour. School tours are expected to last approximately 2 hours.

Our Indoor Tours are Closed Due to Covid 19
