EDUCATION CORNER

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

Education is a fundamental component in AMMC’s mission of preserving and interpreting the rich and diverse heritage of The Bahamas. To achieve this mission, a comprehensive education program is in place to maximize the learning potential of each site managed by AMMC. These programs seek to engage students, educators, visitors and the general public. Activities are enriching, exciting and provide accurate historical context for the benefit of persons visiting our sites.

FIELD EXPERIENCES AT THE POMPEY MUSEUM OF SLAVERY AND EMANCIPATION

Launched in 2015, Field Experiences are designed to educate students on the history of slavery in The Bahamas. Participants in the program can look forward to a tour of the museum and featured exhibits, a museum lesson as well as a fun activity.

Various historical inquiry skills used in historical research and interpretation were isolated to serve as the nucleus for each program level.

There are currently three program levels:

 

  • Primary Program (Grades 3-6) – Archaeology
  • Junior Program (Grades 7-9) – Genealogy
  • Senior Program (Grades 10-12) – Modern Day Slavery/ Human Trafficking

 

VAT inclusive Cost:
Ages 0-12 $3.23
Ages 13-18 $4.31

Museum Hours:
Mon. – Sat: 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 a.m.
