|The Madison Historical Society is dedicated to its mission to provide quality educational experiences for its members as well as its visitors. Our education programs expand the learning process well beyond mere observation of the objects in our collection. We provide opportunities for both the examination of historical artifacts and for conversation about historical lifeways and cultural trends.
In all of our education programs, the MHS strives to reach both youngsters and lifetime learners of all ages:

The Frederick Lee Lectures are, typically, a series of three Sunday-afternoon programs offered to both members and visitors during the late winter or early spring months;
Field Trips take members and visitors to off-site opportunities for discovery;
Guided Student Tours, tailored to social studies curriculum standards, bring young students to Lee's Academy, the town green, and other nearby historic structures;
Allis-Bushnell House Tours are offered to the public on CT Open House Day in early June and on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, and at other times, by appointment, for families, Scout groups, and other groups.
Conversations with the Curator is a members-only opportunity to explore intriguing items from the collection and hear their related stories.
The MHS History Book Group is a monthly gathering of adults who share a love of history, reading on historic topics, and lively discussion.
