The Bostonian Society is proud to serve thousands of students and teachers each year by offering field trips to the Old State House Museum; interactive school programs; and lesson plans, primary documents, and online resources for classroom enrichment. If you would like to visit the Old State House Museum with your class or group, please visit our Group Visits and Programs page. Even if you are not in the Boston area, or are unable to visit the Old State House Museum, you can still take advantage of the activities available on our Teacher Resources page, including downloadable lesson plans and our Boston Massacre online game.
