 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–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 and 60 students maximum per hour program. (Groups with more than 60 students will be scheduled for both program time slots and 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 visit museum exhibits or the Butterfly Rainforest and/or Featured Exhibit without the benefit of docents or staff. These visits may be scheduled anytime Monday through Saturday 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. A staff member will greet your group and assist you with check-in and payment upon arrival. After that, your group leaders are entirely responsible for the educational experience of the students. You may self-guide multiple exhibits.
