Trouped Trunks

Traveling Trunks for Schools - Greensboro Historical Museum

Hands-on experiences fill students with wonder.

Trouped trunks are presented by volunteers at your Guilford County location. Because items are often passed among students, group size may not exceed 35 students. Up to three presentations in one visit may be arranged, each lasting 30 to 60 minutes long.

How Much does it Cost to Reserve a Trouped Trunk?

It costs $10 per presentation. Each presentation is for groups of 35 or fewer, with a limit of three presentations per visit.

What Forms of Payment Does the Museum Accept?

We accept cash and checks. The museum asks patrons who are using cash to provide exact change.
