Plan a Trip
We recognize that bringing a group to the Academy can be intimidating: the learning environment is stimulating and the list of daily events staggering.
To assist you with trip planning, we've highlighted must-see exhibits and popular presentations, and recommended resources for structuring learning.
Want to do something extra special? Bring your group of young naturalists to a Penguins + Pajamas Sleepover to curl up alongside our animals.
For Homeschooling Families
Twice a year on Homeschool Days, we invite homeschool children and their families to attend the Academy at field trip rates.
Educators of homeschooled children can also plan a trip at discounted admission rates, assuming a group of 10 students or more.
School Field Trips
School field trips are available year-round for preK-12 school groups, including established preschools. Bring one class, or the entire grade!
Out-of-school Youth Groups
Attention summer camps, science clubs, and youth squads! We offer discounted rates for groups serving youth in out-of-school time.
Helpful resources for planning your group's visit to the Academy.
The School & Youth Field Trips program is generously supported by Pacific Gas and Electric Company and the Sakana Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Academy’s local business donors.
