I really think that it was great for you to come to our school and make us learn more about other places. I think you should go to all schools and teach them about how we are all alike.

Connecting Cultures Mobile Museum reaches communities throughout the Los Angeles area, and is committed to enriching the educational experience of as many students as possible. CCMM primarily brings its Mobile Museum to middle school students at Title 1-funded, low-income schools, but has brought its program to high schools, elementary schools, and private schools when possible.

Understanding that students, whether from affluent or disadvantaged backgrounds, often have limited contact with cultures outside their own communities, CCMM aims to provide all students with the opportunity to explore the similarities and differences between the traditions, practices, and artifacts of diverse ethnic backgrounds.
When able to coordinate it with the school, CCMM offers “Community Nights,” staying open after school hours for the schools’ parents, family, and community members. In this way, CCMM enriches the entire community and provides students with an opportunity to be docents for their families.
