Tours Begin Monday May 19, 2014.
Several recent publications have incorrectly indicated that tours resume the weekend of April 19 & 20. The park grounds are open year round from 7:00am to sunset, but tours will not resume until Monday May 19.
Parks as Classrooms
Field Trips Field trips offer teachers and students a chance to experience up-close historic buildings, artifacts, and landscapes. Park rangers lead guided tours of the historic buildings for school groups visiting the park in the spring and fall.
Martin Van Buren National Historic Site has many lesson plans for teachers at the elementary and middle school levels. Lessons and activities may be used to supplement classroom instruction or to prepare for a visit.
