Program Details

Why did people move to Texas from other countries? Were they always welcomed when they arrived? A Museum Educator will discuss the four primary waves of immigration to the United States through Texas from 1845-1924, the history behind the movement of people to Texas, interesting stories from immigrants, and show artifacts that people brought with them on the journey. Many of the stories of immigration to Texas can also be compared to the characteristics of immigration to the United States. 

You'll be able to ask questions during the Q and A at the end of the program. No supplies needed, but if you want to add on some extension activities, see below.
