As part of August Educator Days, the Japanese American Museum of Oregon is hosting a free museum tour for educators on Thursday, August 11 at 10:30am.
The tour will be tailored to educators to demonstrate what school tours at the museum are like and what resources may be most helpful for the classroom. We request that you RSVP here or call 503-224-1458, but we will welcome any educators who decide to attend, even if it’s last minute!
