School Enrollment Program
The School Program is a wonderful opportunity for schools to consider when planning their outreach and field trip activities. For all school districts who participate, the Museum offers a sliding scale fee based on school enrollment so all of the classes in your school district can tour the Museum at no additional cost for one year.
Joining the School Program gives teachers the opportunity to take learning outside of the classroom. The students, many of whom cannot afford extras, are able to take part in learning more about the fascinating history of our region. With all of the changes taking place at the Museum it is an opportune time to rediscover our fascinating history. If your school district would like to join our School Program please contact the Audie Murphy/American Cotton Museum at (903) 450-4502.
The museum has a research collection focusing primarily on cotton, military and Hunt County history.
