“For the past several years my students and I have visited visit Hallie Ford Museum, and the kids (and adults) always enjoy it. Hallie Ford offers an inexpensive and relevant opportunity for a top-notch fine arts field trip. I highly recommend it!”
-Jerry Quigg, 4/5 Teacher, Candalaria Elementary
“[T]here is nothing like bringing kids to such a wonderful, local resource! If anyone ever asked me what the best kept secret in Salem was, I'd say, ‘Hallie Ford Museum of Art.’"
-Lisa Leirmo, Art Teacher, McKay High School
"I loved the beautiful art work. I loved our tour guide. We appreciate you letting us discover the true creativeness of artists."
-Ava, fifth grade
