If you teach middle or high school, we realize that you often have to bring the entire grade in order to plan a field trip. Well, we have plenty of dates available with hundreds of spots left, so don’t fret!

As of this post, here are dates that have at least 400 spots remaining for a morning visit:

…and that’s just over the next few months! If you are interested in a trip later in the spring, rest assured we still have space for your school. Just submit the online application with an idea of your preferred visit dates, and a representative will soon be in touch with you to solidify the best date.

And if you just want to bring a single class or two, you’re golden. Just submit your application and we’ll process it promptly!

    Our school is multi-level from grades 5-12 with a total of 30 students only. Is there a tour that they will be seeing everything with a limited time?(whole afternoon). We are trying to get the “No Charge” areas as much as possible due to budget.

    Hey Reggie,

    There is plenty to do for free here! In fact, the entire museum comes with your field trip entry. However, we don’t have a staff-guided tour. I recommend browsing the lessons/activities and the daily presentations to focus students on some aspect, leaving some room for free exploration. You’ll find docents scattered throughout, but we can’t estimate how many will be present on your visit date (some might enjoy taking your kids on a tour, though!)
