Learning Experiences

Field Trip

Self-guided Field Trip

Self-guided field trips are a great way to extend learning (and fun!) beyond the classroom.

At the Children’s Museum, we believe in kid-powered learning, and work hard every day to open doors for our future leaders, innovators, and adventurers to explore, create and learn on their own terms. Our exhibits are hands-on, interactive, totally one-of-a-kind, and are expertly designed to build 21st Century Skills, and engage growing minds in science, the arts, literature, and health and wellness.

Let your students explore sudsy science in Bubbles, express themselves in The Art Studio, learn about the Laws of Motion in Kinetics or get their hearts pumping in Joy Park!

New this year! Bring as many chaperones as you want at no cost.
