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, imaginative play, health and practical life. Adult supervisors are encouraged to actively engage and play with children at each exhibit space. Accompanying adult supervisors and chaperones are free within our 1 adult per every 5 child guidelines. Adults over this ratio will be charged an entry fee. 

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.
