Museum Field Trips

Best for pre-K through 2nd grade, museum field trips are offered to area schools and other organizations year-round! We are able to host up to 32 children at a time at a group rate of $3 per child. All accompanying adults are free of charge, and we ask that at least one adult is present for every 5 children to ensure adequate supervision as your group explores our museum.
