Our museums remain closed due to COVID-19. While LA County Public Health has entered Phase 3 of the Roadmap to Recovery, allowing for the reopening of museums on June 12, our museums are still slowly welcoming back staff and are in the process of planning for new health and safety protocols in our galleries and gardens. Therefore, we will not be reopening until later in the summer. Sign up here to be the first to know when we will safely re-open to the public and in the meantime, stay connected from home.

Educator Workshops

large group of teachers at educator open house participate in annual raffle

Spend a Saturday morning at the Natural History Museum and gain unique experiences and skills to take back to your classroom. 

Our free weekend Educator Workshops explore teaching techniques and methodologies that will connect your students to active science in L.A. and meet NGSS and Common Core goals!

What We Offer

From helping you explore nature and science with your students, to forming connections with natural history through art, we’ve got you covered! Participating in active research with our Community Science team, practicing science skills by observing insects and plants in our Nature Garden, and learning through art and play with our Performing Arts puppeteers are just a few ways you can participate in our professional development opportunities for educators.

These morning workshops are designed with adult learners in mind. We use these programs to model facilitation techniques and programmatic practice by educators at the Natural History Museum, introduce creative and compelling resources, activities, and lesson plans, and experience the latest discoveries and research with our Research and Collections staff!

Space is limited; pre-registration for workshops required. Registration opens two weeks in advance of workshop date. Dates and themes are subject to change.
