Voices of the Great Hall brings real characters from Washington’s history to life.

Check back for more information about 2021-2022 program offerings.

During this field trip, student groups are led through the Great Hall, to three different characters and experience the past through their defining moments.

At the conclusion of each interactive performance, students are encouraged to ask questions about the event and/or life of their character. Students will have opportunities to explore the museum exhibits before and/or after the guided portion of the tour. This facilitated program can accommodate groups up to 200 students.
