ndustrialist Henry Clay Frick purchased Clayton as his home in 1882. It is now a rare primary source (more than 90% complete!) for the study of Victorian life and culture. A visit to Clayton is much more than a look into a Gilded Age house. All school visits include the use of touchable objects. Programs are interactive, inquiry-based and challenge students to use deductive reasoning, visual literacy and critical thinking skills as they “figure out” the past. Our workshops emphasize teamwork, cooperative learning and fun. I

Outstanding program— instructors are excellent in creativity, content, flexibility, and interaction with students. Of all field trips I’ve taken in 35 years The Tuneful Trip is exceedingly impressive. I have no suggestions as your curriculum/program is perfect!

Long, Long Ago in Pittsburgh . . . Kids in Clayton? Not a problem! Younger students keep busy role-playing in the dining room, handling antique implements in the kitchen and searching for patterns repeated throughout the house. They also join in lively songs and rhymes in our Car and Carriage Museum. Learn about life long ago and early transportation—all in one lively visit!
