Plan Your Field Trip

Public, Private and Home School Groups

School groups who wish to visit the Museum or Prairie Ridge have three field trip options. All options require pre-registration, but each option has different scheduling instructions.

Field Trip Option 1: Museum visit only

Discover and learn at your own pace as you explore the Museum’s four floors of exhibits.

Field Trip Option 2: Museum visit plus student program

Explore the Museum before or after your group participates in a fee-based, curriculum-correlated student program (available September–June).

Field Trip Option 3: Student program at Prairie Ridge

Outdoor student programs at Prairie Ridge, the Museum’s field station, are offered to rising Kindergarten-12th grade students. These programs are available throughout the school year and summer.

Non-school Groups

All groups of 10 or more individuals (including youth camps, adults and seniors) must schedule their visit to the Museum or to Prairie Ridge.
