FIELD TRIPS

Make the whole museum your classroom. Our field trips engage students of all ages with interactive and entertaining exhibits and activities.

Whether you’re visiting with a group of five or 50, the Idaho Museum of Natural History can offer your students an authentic experience like none other. We customize field trip experiences to encompass all areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education in alignment with the Idaho State Standards. Exhibit Interpreters and Museum staff offer insight on gallery exhibitions while the Science Discovery Center offers a free-choice learning environment for scientific discovery.
