Westport Historical Society offers a variety of educational programs for children and adults. Our programs revolve around unlocking the past and bringing it to life. All of our childrens programs are inquiry based and revolve around revised social studies curriculum.

Field Trips

WHS hosts fieldtrips on Westport’s history for every age group. Field trips are available Monday through Friday during normal business hours, though special arraingements can be made if your group needs an earlier time. In the past field trips have focused on geography, transportation, family roles, industry, and schools. Each visit can be customized to fit the particular subject students are studying.

Field trips cost $10 per student with four complimentary chaperone admissions. Financial aid can be arranged in special circumstances.
