WHAT IS THE COST OF THE MMOT?
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A MMOT VISIT?
Unlike a traditional museum, the MMOT does not have physical artifacts or traditional exhibits. Each workshop is between 40-45 minutes long. Three of the workshops – The Story of Anne Frank, Civil Rights, and Ordinary People – use a “trigger film” about the Holocaust or Civil Rights Movement to teach the history of those time periods and how people were dehumanized based on their race and/or religion. The Educator then facilitates a dialogue as to modern-day examples of fighting for civil rights, the roles of upstanders and bystanders, and how students must take an active role in preventing hate and promoting tolerance in their communities.
Our Digital Media Literacy workshop, Combat Hate, utilizes tablet computers and teach students how to identify and analyze propaganda and harmful media. The goal of MMOT’s workshops is for participants to see the humanity in others and to leave the workshop with an action step to make a positive difference in their community.
IS THE MMOT ONLY FOR STUDENTS?
HOW MANY WORKSHOPS AND HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN THE MMOT ACCOMMODATE PER DAY?
The MMOT can accommodate up to 6 workshops of 32 people (31 students and one teacher) per day.
Workshops are between 40-45 minutes.
**Please note that 6 workshops is the max, however, if the MMOT is to visit several locations within a school district during a single visit, these hours of operation & the number of available workshops may be reduced.
IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE THE WORKSHOPS WITHOUT THE MMOT BEING PRESENT?
Yes. Through the MMOT Extension, we can offer a range of workshops virtually or in-person including our nationally recognized Combat Hate Digital Media Literacy workshop which can be brought directly into the classroom. The MMOT Extension also provides speakers who have first-hand experience with historical events, such as the Holocaust, Rwandan and Armenian Genocides, Lost Boys of Sudan survivors, or former white nationalist leaders who left hate behind.
IS THE MMOT WHEELCHAIR ACCESSIBLE?
Yes. We have a wheelchair lift. Please contact the educator prior to the workshop to prepare the lift before the class arrives.
ARE THE MMOT VIDEOS AVAILABLE FOR THE HEARING IMPAIRED?
Yes. All of the videos for the MMOT workshops are shown with English subtitles.
ARE THE MMOT WORKSHOPS AVAILABLE IN OTHER LANGUAGES?
The videos shown for the Ordinary People, Civil Rights, and Anne Frank workshops are available with Spanish subtitles. The MMOT is also equipped with a 25-person simultaneous translation system for the non-video portions of the workshops. Please let us know if you need a translator.
HOW MUCH SPACE IS NEEDED TO PARK THE MMOT?
The MMOT requires a designated parking area of 20ft x 50ft (the equivalent to 6 parking spaces) to park the bus and allow students, or guests, to flow on and off safely. The MMOT cannot park on a regular street and needs to be on level ground.
