 How to Schedule a Field Trip

 

 Field Trip Options (Oct.-May)

Guided Programs are led by Museum docents. They last one hour and are available Tuesday through Friday, at either 10 a.m. or 11:15 a.m., for grades K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Interactive exhibit tours are combined with investigative hands-on activities, individualized to provide age-appropriate content and meet state standards. Limit one guided program per group, 60 children maximum. (Groups with more than 60 students will be scheduled for two program times; groups with more than 120 students will be scheduled for two or more calendar dates.)

Self-guided visits are available for groups that prefer to have a program without the benefit of docents or staff. A staff member will greet your group and facilitate the purchase of Butterfly Rainforest tickets (if desired) before you enter the Museum. After that, your group leaders are entirely responsible for the educational experience of the students. You may self-guide multiple exhibits.
