Gateway to Peace relies on the support of community members to keep its program going. We estimate that each Peace Museum event costs approximately $80.00 per event hour, which means that an eight hour (full-day) event will cost the Museum $640. However, our goal is to provide our program to schools and community organizations free of charge. We cannot do this without the help of generous individuals like you!

THE BASICS OF HOSTING A PEACE MUSEUM EVENT


The location of the Gateway to Peace Museum needs to be indoors, in a secured area with easy access and have multiple power outlets for the computers.  Ideally it should all be set up in one room, but it can be set up in multiple rooms.  The amount of space required will depend on the number of children in your group. The Peace Museum staff will normally arrive at your organization either the evening before an event, or the morning of the event, to set up the activities. This will depend on the length your Peace Museum event.


The Museum works best if children arrive in comparable age groups such as Kindergarten, Primary, Junior or by grade level.  However, the ages could be mixed if the “Peace Guide” feels they can handle the age differences and more time is allotted to each group. Parents and other adults are welcome to attend or participate in your event.

 ***

The following are actual schedules that have been used at various community groups.  For your particular organization, you will need to take into consideration the start and end times of your children's program, lunch/snack periods and any required activities.  The Gateway to Peace Museum experience could take the place of free play time or arts and crafts time since the museum includes physically active learning centers and various types of crafts.  

 

Sample Community Group Schedule 1 - Youth Groups, After-school programs 

This is designed for 1-2 hour youth group programs. The Museum will hold one session in which children of all ages (k-5) will attend the Museum at the same time. This schedule works very well for groups of 20-40 children and would most likely be set up in one large room.  This sample is for a weekend day, but the same type of schedule could be applied to an after-school program.

Sample Community Group Schedule 2 - Camps, All-day youth program, 1/2 day

We consider this schedule to be ideal for camps and larger youth programs. It works well for volunteers and for children because it provides plenty of time to participate in the learning centers. Typically, all activities will be set up in one large room such as a gym or cafeteria. The Museum staff will set up in the morning and then hold 2 or more sessions in the afternoon. Children could be separated by age groups, cabins, etc.
