SPARKING AN INTEREST in Emily Dickinson’s life and work among learners of all ages is central to the Museum’s mission.

The Museum offers educational programs for students of all ages, enrichment opportunities and workshops for teachers, and project-based internships for college and graduate students. We believe the power of place brings poetry to life.
