Field trips to online tours.

Are you or your students interested in learning more about the German language and culture at the Athenaeum? The Foundation offers field trip experiences for students of all ages, including specially curated resources that support the Indiana K-12 curriculum.

The Athenaeum is located in downtown Indianapolis, along the Mass Ave corridor. We will be happy to host your group to facilitate an enriching educational experience. Load up the bus and bring your class for a specially crafted Athenaeum tour that highlights some of the most important events in Indianapolis’ German-American history.

Class is now in session.

The Athenaeum also offers supplemental field lesson materials to enhance students’ visits and save you time. These FREE downloadable documents can be edited to best suit the needs of your students. Each version offers a mixture of critical thinking levels that will challenge your students and engage them while they explore the Athenaeum. The advanced German version includes a number of responses required in German and short essay prompts for students to use back in the classroom.
