“Green-Wood is a spectacular outdoor museum,
but the true work of art is Green-Wood itself.”

Director of Curatorial Affairs, Brooklyn Museum


Thanks to a generous grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), Historic Green-Wood Cemetery, via The Green-Wood Historic Fund, is gearing up to offer a new range of Common Core- and C3 Framework for Social Studies-aligned school programs and professional development opportunities starting in Fall, 2019.

All previously-scheduled education programs for the 2018-19 academic will take place as scheduled.
