Due to the small spaces within the museum, we do not allow more than 1 chaperone per 10 students. This number includes the teacher. Please be mindful of the number of adults attending the field trip as we may not be able to allow all chaperones in with the school tour.
We have transformed our traditional historic house tour into one that puts history into their hands! Not only that, but we have extended the length of our on-site field trips and incorporated more hands-on learning opportunities for your students. Field trip programming now lasts 75 minutes and occurs on most Wednesdays and Thursdays during the school year.
