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.

We provide an introduction with video for the whole group, then depending on numbers, split them in half. Half of the students then take a tour of the Museum while the other half does an activity which can be flexible based on your students' needs, and then the groups swap over. We 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. Please contact David Nelson, Education Specialist, at, or 239-263-9200, ext. 205.

Museum Field Trip Forms

Special Note: Thanks to a generous grant from Suncoast Credit Union Foundation, funds are available to help defray the cost of 8th grade Field Trips to the Museum. The grant provides funds to cover all associated costs with these trips, from transportation to substitute teachers needed during your absence. Please let us know if we can help in getting your students to the Museum.

Contact David Nelson, Education Specialist, at or 239-263-9200, ext. 205 for details and restrictions.

We are grateful to Suncoast Credit Union Foundation for their support of our Mission. Many additional students have been able to visit the Museum as a result of the Foundation’s generosity.
