Educational & School Programs

The Surratt House Museum offers a variety of museum-based and outreach programs for schools, camps, day care facilities, and Boy Scout and Girl Scout groups. Educational programs are developed for children ranging between 5-18 years of age. Depending on the program selected, the museum emphasizes two main topics:

   • The involvement of Mary Surratt and her family in the assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
   • Daily life in Prince George’s County, Maryland during the mid-19th century.

All educational programs are presented by museum educators attired in period clothing. The programs support the observation, analytical and decision-making skills listed within the Maryland Voluntary State Curriculum.
