Come visit us for memorable learning adventures! Explore the museum through a factory tour and workshops designed specifically for Scouts.

Factory and Museum Tours for Scouts

On their tour of APH, Scouts can see the production of braille publications, the recording of Talking Books, a demonstration of educational materials, and experience the exhibits and interactive displays in the Museum. Each tour is tailored to suit the time each group has available, the age level of the students, their educational interests, and any special needs.

For younger groups we recommend a one-hour visit. Allow an hour and a half or longer for older students.

Museum Workshops for Scouts

Workshops for Scouts can be scheduled on Saturdays, during school vacations, and after school. We offer workshops that are tied to scout advancements and our own “fun patch” workshops.
