Field Trips

We’ve missed you! To best serve our audiences, nearly all of our K–12 programs will be held through live virtual programs and online experiences this fall. Contact us to find creative ways to meet your learning needs and fit your budget. View our general safety plans if you are considering an in-person visit.

In order to ensure the safety of all visitors, the Museum currently has low capacity for in-person field trips. We have suspended all on-site tours and workshops but will accept small groups for self-guiding in the galleries. Request your trip for more details about self-guiding.

For the safety of our visitors and staff, the following in-person programs have been suspended. We recommend booking Virtual Programs instead.

Storytime Expedition

Offering unique experiences in our Museum galleries, Storytime Expeditions go beyond a regular storybook reading to grow appreciation for cultural diversity and develop empathy and critical thinking skills. Immerse your students in global education while encouraging literacy through listening to culturally-appropriate stories, exploring key gallery objects, and interacting with touchable artifacts.

Interactive Workshops

Explore ancient worlds through hands-on workshops led by experienced museum educators. Students learn how to use artifacts as primary sources to understand the past. Life-like props and replica artifacts give students of all abilities and ages fun, interactive learning experiences.
