School and Youth Groups

Introduce your students, scouts or campers to the creative genius of Henry Chapman Mercer (1856-1930), renowned historian, artist, archaeologist and tile-maker. Programs and tours focus on early American history and technology, and Mercer’s own architecture, ceramics, collecting vision, and local and regional history. Special exhibits in the Mercer Museum’s changing galleries enhance your group’s visit.
