Take a Field Trip as a Family

Take a Field Trip as a Family


Published Date: October 2, 2020

School-sponsored field trips may be on hiatus, but here are some options for field trips you can take as a family.

Do you remember going on field trips as a child? School bus experience aside, there’s so much fun to be had in packing a brown bag lunch and spending a couple of hours wandering through a museum or garden and learning firsthand all kinds of things that you’ve been talking about in the classroom. We know our schools have a high value for field trips as part of typical school years and we’re here to fill the gap while field trips hit the “pause button” for a short season in our schools.

This makes a great afternoon field trip, with their 1-5 p.m. hours, Tuesday-Saturday. Submit your requests for timed admission — which is free — here.
