While our doors may be closed to the public, we are opening the Mansion up to local schools who are taking part in our A Century of Change school curriculum.
Elementary schools from around Cumberland County have the opportunity to select from 8 lessons that look at the changes over time that created the world we now live in, through the lens of Victoria Mansion and Portland in the 19th century. The most popular lessons include discussions of technology, etiquette, immigration, and symbolism, and include both an in class lesson and a guided program in the Mansion itself.
A Century of Change is a free program for schools offered from mid-February through April. For more information, please contact Director of Education Stacia Hanscom at firstname.lastname@example.org, or follow this link to our online brochure.
