Education at MOCA
MOCA's educational programs engage participants in an active learning process that makes history come alive, instills a love for lifelong learning, sharpens basic skills, and presents guided opportunities for deeper engagement with their education, history, and contemporary community issues.

MOCA’s school programs are designed to enrich classroom learning in the arts, social studies, civics and government. Through an interdisciplinary and inquiry-based approach, each school program reinforces essential concepts and skills found in the New York State Social Studies Core Curriculum. Each program lasts 75 minutes, is led by a museum educator and includes directed discussions, exploration of the exhibit and hands-on activities to allow students to experience history from primary sources.

MOCA offers gallery talks and walking tours for seniors. These programs encourage seniors to engage with the Museum's exhibits and learn about the history of the local neighborhood, while connecting with their personal experiences.
MOCA graciously acknowledges support from Con Edison in making its educational programming possible.
