The Museum furnishes transportation and most equipment.

The field trips are designed for students, adults, families (children must have completed 4th grade to come unaccompanied).

Teachers can earn up to 8 professional development hours for each session.

Our trip schedule for Summer 2019 will be posted later this year, but in the meantime here is last summer’s schedule to give you a better idea of the trips we offer.
