Moruga Museum embarks on its ‘Moruga Museum Mobile’ (M.M.M) 2015 initiative.

The Moruga Museum Mobile will be launched on Monday 26th January, 2015 at the Tableland High School, making this the first triple M for the year 2015. A subsequent visit to the aforementioned school on Tuesday 27th January, 2015 will further add to the success of the M.M.M last year. What the M.M.M does is take artefacts and other items out of the museum and repository and brings these items into schools, institutions or themed events along with relevant lectures and information provided by the curators.

On Monday 26th January, a total of over 150 students and staff visited the temporary exhibit of Amerindian artefacts on display at the Tableland High School. Both students and teachers alike were fascinated by the experience of being able to interact with artefacts hundreds of years old, coming face to face with subject matters that they merely read about. At approximately 10:00 am students crowded around the display, eager to learn, ask questions and interact. Staff members of the Moruga Museum not only facilitated their inquisitions with information that had been thoroughly researched beforehand, but supplemented the information as outlined in their curriculum. The display ran until the end of the school day at 2:15 pm and continued the following morning until noon. On Tuesday, students who did not get a chance to view the display the day before were able to do so as well students who re-visited were also welcomed. The form five History class was also given a specialized lecture, geared towards aiding the students with their School Based Assessment (S.B.A) to perhaps evoke new ideas for their areas of study as well as aid in how they should format and edit their assignments.

The museum welcomes schools of Trinidad and Tobago to request the Moruga Museum Mobile initiative that we ensure will only encourage interactive and exciting learning.
