Field trips play an important role for students and educators. A new learning environment provides the opportunity to build team and small group skills and engage students on an intellectual, social and physical level.
By integrating classroom learning with physical objects and hands-on experiences, students have an opportunity to better understand curriculum concepts and how they connect to the world around them.
TEACHERS & CHAPERONES
Teacher and chaperone involvement in the visit greatly improves the students’ experience.
Chaperones are FREE at the ratio of 1 for every 3 preschool and kindergarten students, and 1 for every 5 students in grades 1-12.
Teachers are always FREE.
Additional chaperones (beyond the recommended ratio noted above) are always welcome at an additional fee of $10 per person.
Please note: To qualify for group rates a minimum of 20 paying guests is required.
Due to classroom space limitations, chaperones may not be able to attend all programming.
Please brief your chaperones in advance so they will feel comfortable and know what is expected of them and the students in their charge. We ask that all chaperones supervise and stay with their group during the entire visit.
We reserve the right to shorten your group’s visit due to behavior issues that impact other guests or museum property.
- Programs start on the hour and run 45 minutes.
- Due to limited space we are only able to store coats and lunches.
- Food and beverages are only permitted in designated areas.
- Chewing gum is not permitted in the museum.
