Step 2. Choose a Field Trip Format
Due to covid-19 precautions, we are currently only offering Self-paced field trips. A Self-paced field trip is ideal for organizations who would like to schedule a day for families to meet up at the museum and is an option for schools, camps or daycares who can provide at least one chaperone for every 5 children. All visitors must follow our health and social distance guidelines.
Required chaperones and teachers are admitted free for field trips (1 adult for every 5 students) and additional chaperones can be included at a reduced admission rate. The cost per student below includes general admission to Carnegie Museums of Art and Natural History for the same day as the field trip visit. Costs listed below are applicable for groups of 10 students or more.
SELF-PACED FIELD TRIP (MUSEUM QUEST)
