The McCreary County Museum is proud to offer the following educational resources:

Free Memberships to interested McCreary County teachers. Our hopes are that with easy, regular access to our publications, programs, and exhibits that we can assist local teachers with learning resources outside the classroom. Click here for details. 

Treasure Hunts for Preschool through Elementary level students. The treasure hunt is an on-site program that engages the student to look at each exhibit in hopes of finding a selected artifact so they can get the treasure. 

A Coloring Book that includes 36 pages of local history including sketches of historic sites and artifacts from McCreary County and the Museum.  The book is compiled into a fun and educational coloring book for any child. Click here for a FREE coloring page example.
