Museum of Riverside

About Our School Programs

The Museum’s Mission Inn Avenue location is closed for renovation and expansion. Most school tours are not available during the closure. See below for Heritage House tours, which continue through the renovation period.

When the Museum reopens, estimated not before 2025, tours at the downtown location will resume, both for school groups and the public. After reopening, the Museum will offer curriculum-based school programs focusing on local natural history, Indigenous culture, and Riverside's history.

The Miuseum’s programs are developed by professional museum educators and trained docents, and are designed to meet California state learning standards. Programs will also be available for homeschool groups visiting the Museum.

All programs:

  • Meet state academic standards and correspond to specific classroom curriculum units.
  • Are tailored to group age and academic level.
  • Are led by a trained Museum Educator.

Heritage House Tours
All ages | One-hour program
In groups of 10-12, students receive a 30-minute house tour that introduces them to life in Riverside in the 1890s, focusing on the contrast between life now and then. Outside activities include a tour of the barn, orange grove, and citrus sizer, as well as learning how our forebears did laundry and used period household items. "The Queen’s Own Grove" by Patricia Beatty is suggested reading. Heritage House is located at 8193 Magnolia Avenue in Riverside.
