Our VISION is to develop in the young and the young at heart a love of learning about their community and the environment so that the dreams they dream of a better world and a better future can and will come true.
Bethlehem Shipyard Museum hopes to have a permanent exhibit in the near future. We are excited to have been invited to place pop-up exhibits in local festival and merchant locations such as the Port of San Francisco’s Maritime Day, Labor Fest at the ILWU, and with the Potrero Hill History Association.
MOBILE EXHIBIT MUSEUM
Bethlehem Shipyard Museum is unique in that it is also a full-time mobile museum, delivering free, age appropriate, educational and interactive exhibits to the greater Bay Area school yards, as well as Boys and Girls Clubs, libraries, veterans’ hospitals and homes, senior centers and cultural fairs.
The Bethlehem Shipyard Museum personnel will work with teachers at every school in the Bay Area in order to bring relevant pieces of the California Department of Education’s Common Core State Standards, tailored to their school and their students.
Bethlehem Shipyard Museum sees its exhibits as expanding student awareness of the skills necessary for future employment in the area of the skilled trades.Read More
The Bethlehem Shipyard Museum believes that children who are at risk either socially or educationally deserve special help. The Museum further believes that parents and caregivers play a critical role in supporting children’s learning. Therefore, the Museum will engage their assistance in its weekend tutoring program focusing on:
Hard Skills – the 3-R’s
Soft Skills – conscientiousness, perseverance; communication and sociability
Life Skills – problem solving, time management, first aid training, swimming and other water related activities.
