Autry in Recidence

Autry in Residence

A 60-minute object-based history program, Autry-in-Residence makes learning history fun while fostering student-driven learning, critical thinking, and 21st century skills. Trained museum teachers visit your classroom with a collection of objects related to specific topics in the history of the American West. Working in teams and facilitated by Autry staff, students become history detectives by analyzing objects from the museum, right at their very own desks.
