For Teachers

The New York State Historical Association, the Fenimore Art Museum, Research Library, and our sister institution, The Farmers’ Museum, offer a wealth of educational opportunities for teachers and students. From free curriculum on our “Lesson a Month” page, to free research opportunities for programs like New York State History Day, NYSHA continues its over 100 year tradition of providing the best resources, exhibitions, professional development opportunities and on site visits for teachers and their students.

It is our mission to be the resource for teachers in New York State for art and history instruction. Our collections offer an opportunity to engage your students in the very real worlds of history, art and culture. Our web pages are not only an informative portal to the Association’s resources, but also a content-rich destination to browse and absorb.
