2020-21 School Year Update
This year the History Hunters Program will be fully virtual!! Teachers and students will have access to the five historic house tours in a Virtual Reality YouTube format. Teachers can schedule five live 30 minute Google Meet Sessions with History Hunters Educators, who will lead a Q&A and a virtual activity. Hard copies of the workbook will still be available to teachers who register for the program.
Stay tuned for more website updates as we work to create more online material.
Register Your Class to Participate
Private and suburban school classes are invited to participate in History Hunters, too! Because the program is flexible, we can help you decide which elements of the program to include in your curriculum and meet your classroom needs. Admission is $6 per student for one site. If multiple tours are booked, admission is $5 per student. Chaperones and teachers are free.

All classroom teachers who would like to participate in the program must fill out a registration form for their class annually. The form will automatically be sent to the History Hunters Coordinator for approval. Subsidized spaces are available for Philadelphia School District schools. Registrations for subsidized spaces are approved on a first come, first served basis; priority is given to Northwest Philadelphia schools. Previously participating teachers are asked to fill out the registration form at the beginning of each year to ensure that all classrooms are given equal opportunity to participate.
