Moulton Museum understands the importance of passing Orange County’s rich history on to its future pioneers. Our new Traveling History Trunk Program serves as an extension of our Education Outreach Program.
Designed to provide a glimpse of what students will see on their upcoming field trip, a trunk will be delivered to the school two weeks prior to their scheduled field trip so they can explore, wonder, and develop deeper connections to their community.
If you are a local educator interested in participating in our Traveling History Trunk program, please join our Interest List below.
We also value your feedback and would love your insight on how we can continue to improve this program. Share your feedback by filling out our Educator Survey below.

Our Traveling History Trunk program focuses on making your classroom instruction even more impactful. Here’s the general process you can expect:
Nothing! By signing up for a classroom, tour at Moulton Museum, we offer the Traveling History Trunk program as an additional hands-on learning opportunity to support your classroom instruction, free of charge.
You will get to keep the trunk for two weeks. We want to make sure you have plenty of time to give all of your students an opportunity to engage with the artifacts inside.
While the contents of each grade-level trunk will vary, you will most commonly find primary documents, letters, photographs, maps, wardrobe items, ranching gear, artwork, and more!
There’s no better way to learn about history than experience it hands-on.
