The Northeast Georgia History Center is the premier history resource for teachers throughout the region.  We continue to make available our Travel Trunks, gallery tours, living history demonstrations, and museum theatre performances.  However, school budgets, curricula, and scheduling are making it more and more difficult to bring students to the History Center.

Therefore, we developed a new program that brings the History Center to YOU:

    The Cottrell Digital Studio






All programs designed to help educators satisfy the state’s mandate to use technology in learning and to satisfy Georgia Performance Standards in Education, and can be delivered as on demand downloadable/online viewing content or direct to classroom/school broadcasts.

Virtual Field Trips/Exhibits Tours

The History Center can broadcast 20-to-45 minute live and interactive Virtual Field Trips of our exhibit galleries, gardens, and historic houses
