May & June

Spring Fieldtrips

May and June are the busiest months for fieldtrips to the Museum. We offer a combination of guided and self-use experiences during your visit. We can accomodate up to two classes in guided programming. Morning fieldtrips begin at 9:45 a.m. and afternoon fieldtrips begin at 1:15 p.m. 

To visit the Museum on your own timetable, without booking a guided program with Museum staff, choose a Teacher Supervised Visit on the online booking request. Worksheets for the galleries are available for you to print.
