Discover creative ways to enhance learning

Take advantage of opportunities to bring Lowcountry topics to life

A trip outside the classroom is often a highlight in a student’s year. They remember the experience and, more importantly, what they learned. The Morris Center offers a variety of lesson plans and programs for schools and other educational organizations. Tailored to South Carolina’s Curriculum Standards, these lessons and programs engage and inspire students with hands-on learning activities.

School groups interested in scheduling a fieldtrip should contact the Director of Programs & Exhibits, Annmarie Reiley-Kay at Areiley@morrisheritagecenter.org or at 843-284-9227, ext. 0.

School visits are free but are self-guided.  Teachers can add a program to the visit, but the cost depends on the length of the program and materials (per student cost).

Take a look at the list below and discover all the ways your students can learn with the Morris Center.
