School Group Field Trip Tours
The Museum can accommodate approximately sixty (60) students and chaperones per visit. The visit/program typically lasts about 2-2 1/2 hours and ideally begins by 10:30 at the latest, Tuesday through Friday. We can accommodate an afternoon visit on Monday, if that is more convenient.
The cost is $4.00 per student payable on the day of the visit. Teachers/Chaperones are free.
We provide an introduction with video for the whole group, then split them in half. Half of students the take a tour of the Museum while the other half does an activity which can be flexible based on your students' needs. We then bring everyone back together for a conclusion.
If you’d like a Survivor presentation, we request that we do that for the whole group at the school. This is included in the cost of the Museum visit.
