Enhance your classroom curriculum with an interactive, inexpensive learning experience from the Earl Scruggs Center.  The Earl Scruggs Center offers in-museum and outreach opportunities which inspire learners to express their opinions, interact with material culture, recognize diversity in a community’s shared history and practice historical empathy.  Through the life of Cleveland County native Earl Scruggs and his worldwide impact, learners will discover the people of the region, the challenges they faced and the changes they have made.
