School Programs

America’s Car Museum is your vehicle for learning!

At LeMay – America’s Car Museum, opportunities for continued development of core academic skills and creativity abound! Choose your road to discovery through inquiry-based tours, hands-on workshops, or self-guided exploration. We offer virtual, in-person, and outreach (in your classroom) options to encourage students to examine automobiles as engineering feats, historical artifacts, and rolling sculptures. Give your students the keys to learning by scheduling your reservation today!

Based on current CDC recommendations and the Governor’s mandate, all students, teachers, and chaperones will be required to wear masks while participating in field trips at the Museum.
