Remick Museum & Farm offers a wide range of theme-based education programs that interpret domestic and agricultural life through the past 200 years.

New Educational Activities at the Remick Museum

There are four new educational blocks to try at the Remick:

General Store and Trading Post—Students will learn about bartering and credit at the general store. While role playing they will be able to shop off the shelves of the store and decide what is needed versus what is wanted. Trade routes, lack of common currency, the need for a social gathering spot and the importance of the store owner will be discussed.

Building a Community—What do natural resources, geography and people have in common? The success or demise of a community! Students will decide where buildings, roads and certain jobs should be located on our 3-D community. As resources, technology and population change so do the buildings, needs and location of the community. No two classes will build the same one!

Livestock—Did you know that footballs were originally made from pig’s bladders? Students will learn to identify the different animals on the farm, their multiple uses, and the care and maintenance these animals need. A hands-on activity will reinforce vocabulary using farm-related props.

Sewing Skills—Students will learn about the history of needles and thread and how the mechanization of them has changed sewing, and how sewing, in turn, has helped form civilization itself. Several types of stitches, thread and needles will be discussed. They will learn how the invention of the sewing machine has changed our lives and made fashion mass produced and affordable. Students will learn 3 stitches and create a felted money/cell phone holder.

New Hampshire 4TH graders... win a trip to Remick! In June of 2017 we welcomed Mrs. Sawyer’s class from Wheelock Elementary School in Keene, NH (shown in the photo above). They were the runner up prize winner in the Class Act Video Awards for their video "The Perfect Fit!". As their prize they won a free visit to Remick. We are thrilled to be taking part in this fun and imaginative contest again in the 2017-2018 school year, our fourth year participating as a winning destination. The contest is sponsored by the New Hampshire Division of Tourism & Travel and ALL 4th grades in New Hampshire are encouraged to participate.

Frequently Asked Questions

What days of the week are available?
Field trips may be booked Monday-Friday. Please call for available dates.
 
What time of year and time of day may we come?
We are open year round. Most programming takes place between 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.; however, we do our best to be flexible to meet your needs.
 
What is the minimum group size and fee?
In order to provide a program for your group, there must be a minimum of 10 students and 1 teacher (1 teacher per 10 students participates for free). Therefore, the minimum payment for a group program is $60. To maintain the quality of your program, we require the minimum payment, even if some participants do not show up for the program. Groups larger than 60 are asked to come over multiple days, when possible.
 
How many adults should we bring?
We recommend no more than 3 adults for every 10 students, with a minimum of 1 adult per 10 students. This is meant as a guideline to ensure the focus is on the students during the activity and to minimize distractions.

How should we prepare for our visit?
Make sure all participants are dressed appropriately for the changing weather and wear closed-toe shoes. Sun protection, layers of clothing and rain gear are important, as we may be walking between buildings and many activities are outside. Bring snacks, lunches and water, and inform all adults and chaperones about the day’s schedule and Museum guidelines. Schedules and guidelines will be sent ahead of time to the teacher who is arranging the trip.

During our visit, how large will an individual Educational Program grouping be?
We attempt to schedule 8-15 students per group within the overall Educational Program.
 
What if school is cancelled—your district or ours—on the day our field trip is planned?
If your school is cancelled on the date of your visit, please call us as soon as possible: 603-323-7591. We are closed on days that our local school district is cancelled and will contact you. In either case, we do our best to schedule a back-up date for your visit.
 
Do you have other activities available?
We have self-guided nature walks and themed Activity Bags & Activity Backpacks that may be used on the Museum property.
