Programs

The Michelson creates partnerships with colleges and school districts throughout East Texas and works to enrich their curricula in broad academic areas. 

Programs and tours are interactive or hands-on, as requested. The museum sponsors student exhibits and receptions throughout the year.

The rich cultural mix of students and their families in East Texas is an integral part of the program.


Dr. David Weisman Hirsch Discovery Room

For 30 years, families have enjoyed this bright, colorful space at the Michelson’s entrance. Adults must remain with their visiting children. Spontaneity of expression develops as children apply their own designs to the carpeted walls; selected safe manipulatives, books, and toys appeal to all ages. Surrounded by art in the Discovery Room, learning is fun. As with all of the Michelson's programs, no fee is charged for the use of the Discovery Room.
