The International Museum of Cultures is a unique anthropology museum located in Dallas, TX.

All of our anthropology-based educational programs focus on teaching students to respect and understand other cultures. We have a variety of programs that can be easily integrated into your curriculum (science, social studies, fine arts, English language arts, and math)  and are fun and interactive for your students.

Electronic Field Trip

Our Electronic Field Trip takes the traditional field trip experience to another level! The Electronic Field Trip is entirely online and is designed as an interactive learning tool for your students. Several different activities ensure that your students will enjoy learning about others’ lives around the world without leaving the classroom.

It includes:

  •  a series of videos delivered over the Web that provide an entertaining tour of different sections of the museum. The tour focuses on the Peoples of Africa, South America, Papua New Guinea, and Mexico
  • curricula covering TEKS for K-12 science, social studies, English language arts, and math.

Discovery Boxes

Discovery Boxes allow your students to experience cultures around the world in a unique and interactive way. Discovery boxes come in 12 different themes and include a variety of objects from our museum’s collection. Your students will be able to touch and examine the objects while completing included activities and worksheets that encourage them think critically about the world around them.

Boxes include:

  • a teacher’s guide with detailed object descriptions
  • curricula covering TEKS for K-12 science, social studies, English language arts, fine arts, and math
  • eye-opening activities that guide your students through understanding the objects

Classroom Programs on Anthropology

Docents bring objects from our museum collection to your classroom to allow your students to touch and experience them firsthand. Guided activities provide a flexible and interactive experience for your students.
