Victoria Mansion offers an active roster of educational programs for both students and adults. Because we believe the Mansion itself is our most important resource for studying life in the nineteenth century, educational programs are offered on site when possible and include a tour.
Jacob’s Dream by Luther Terry (1813-1869), oil on canvas, 76”x 84”, c. 1850. Gift of Mrs. Ralph G. Libby.
School Tours and Programs
Students in pre-K, K-12, college, and graduate school visit the site each year. Victoria Mansion's staff enthusiastically assists individual teachers to provide tours and/or programs that incorporate classroom-specific curriculum and encourages teachers to schedule a free visit prior to bringing students. All school and other programs for students at Victoria Mansion are planned in accordance with Maine's Common Core Standards. Please contact the Director of Education at 207-772-4841 ext. 104 for further information.
The Mansion sponsors public lectures, specialized tours, reading and discussion groups, and scholarly symposia on varied nineteenth-century topics that are geared toward adult audiences and participation. Most programs are one-time events and will be listed in the Events section of this website.
