Make Learning Fun! Civil War Tech Program and Mrs. Lincoln’s Attic Indoor Play Room

The Civil War Tech series is a FREE program made possible thanks to generous support from AT&T.

Civil War Tech for Children ages 8-12 

We merge science and history through experiments, artifacts, games, and presentations from scientists, scholars, and ALPLM exhibits. Students will be inspired to think critically about the impact Civil War technology had on our nation’s greatest conflict as well as how it affects us today. Very interactive and fun!  View the 2018 Schedule here.

Civil War Tech for Teachers
Three different programs offered for teachers. Pick the one that best fits your needs. All programs are offered free of charge thanks to support from AT&T.

  1. Civil War Tech Classroom Connections The ALPLM Classroom Connections program allows teachers to add a hands-on experience to their visit to the museum. Available for homeschool and youth groups as well.
  2. Civil War Tech in the Classroom Civil War Tech programs on Railroads, Telegraph, Ironclads, and Submarines are available to travel to classrooms within a 50 mile radius of the museum.
  3. Teacher Professional Development Programs Spend a morning at the ALPLM learning about different topics featured in Civil War Tech and discover ways you can share that content with your students. 

A Fun time will be had in Mrs. Lincoln’s Attic!
Cook a meal in a log cabin, dress up like President Lincoln and his family and friends, and play the same games the Lincoln boys would have played in Mrs. Lincoln’s Attic. The hands-on area is the perfect place for young visitors to explore Mr. Lincoln’s life through play. Included with Museum Admission.
