Walking in a Cotton Wonderland
In 2010, the museum expanded to include an education wing where students grades K-12 will be engaged with innovative displays, games, and exhibits in the unparalleled, interactive “Exploration Hall.”
During a field trip to the Cotton Museum students will:
Explore cotton production, sustainability in agriculture, how technology in the industry has changed since the 1940s, and how that change has transformed American life and the Southern landscape. While reinforcing their learning in subjects from social studies to life sciences, the Museum is also sharing the story of cotton with the next generation and connecting the youth to the city’s agrarian history – and often their own family histories.
