Basic Field Trips & Group Visits

WOW! Field Trips give local school children an opportunity to learn through play and explore the world around them in a fun, unique, and educational environment. Field trips include two hours of self guided explorations of the Museum. During a field trip, children can delve into hands-on exhibits about a variety of subjects, including STEM, art, music, dance, theater, health and practical life. Adult supervisors are encouraged to actively engage and play with children at each exhibit space. We are pleased to offer free adult admission for accompanying adult supervisors and chaperones. Large field trip groups (40 students or more) are welcome to book a field trip visit on a Monday when we are closed to the public.

If you are looking to enhance your field trip experience, add an Exploration to your visit! Visit the Exploration Field Trip page for more information.
