Groups at $10 per student/$150 minimum
OCPS 4th – 8th graders may be eligible for grant funding (school provides transportation)


What Heritage Means to Me is a two-hour field trip that is divided into three experiences including an interactive discussion and exploration of The Heritage Collection: Photographs and Oral Histories of West Winter Park, a walking tour of pertinent landmarks and mosaic timeline of African-American history, and a hands-on visual art workshop where students create a piece of folk art based on their family heritage and traditions.

Visiting the Hannibal Square Heritage Center takes the students into the learning environment where they can view photos and read personal stories about local heroes and understand how everyone can make a difference. This experience is a real world window into the power of diversity and global connections.
