Visiting a museum with peers enhances student intellectual and social-emotional learning. What feels like play is actually hours spent exploring science, technology, engineering and math along with their peers. And when teachers and group leaders ask open-ended questions, that learning is even greater! Children and youth love the hands-on exhibits at Exploration Place.

Field trips are available Monday – Friday.

  • What should we do when we arrive?
    • There is a large circle drive in front of the main entrance to Exploration Place to drop off and pick up children.
    • Ask your bus or van driver to pull as far around the circle drive as possible so others can also drop off students or guests as shown on this map.
    • When you arrive, the lead staff member who organized the field trip should enter, but all other students, parents, and school staff should remain on the bus.
    • We will greet your school on the bus, provide wristbands, and instructions.
