Virtual Education Programs

Lang Pioneer Village Museum offers a variety of virtual outreach programs which will allow both classrooms and families to bring elements of our traditional education programming safely into their own classrooms and homes.

While fun and informative for all ages, these programs target Grade 3 Ontario curriculum objectives and are especially suited to children aged 7 and up.
