Mississippi Children’s Museum field trips promote inquiry-based learning and foster critical thinking skills while supporting best practices.  Our interactive, multi-disciplinary programs will make the concepts introduced and developed in the classroom come alive in our thematic learning environments.  New ideas will ignite as students become interested in learning and make hands-on connections to classroom concepts.  We offer an exciting and engaging environment where children can create, explore, and grow.  We do the work to make your field trip an educational experience, so you can have all the fun!

Field trips and group visits are available for groups of 15 or more children!  This opportunity is great for schools, churches, community organizations, tours and family reunions.  Please note: we do not offer group visits on weekends. Group visits to the museum are 2 hours in length at a cost of $5.00 per student.

For each group, we require a 1:5 ratio of adults to children. One adult for every five children will receive free admission. Additional adults beyond the 1:5 adult to student ratio are eligible for the $5.00 group rate if their payment is made with the group’s.  To help meet the 1:5 required ratio, we suggest:

  1. Bring parents as chaperones.
  2. Offer volunteer hours as field trip chaperones to community or school organizations.

**An additional hour of Museum Exploration can be added to any option for $1.50 per student.
