Step 1. Before You Book Your Field Trip – Gather Information

Step 2. Choose a Field Trip Format
Due to covid-19 precautions, we are currently only offering unguided field trips. An unguided 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.
$10.50 per student
Explore the museum’s exhibitions on your own at a discounted rate for groups. We offer discounts to groups of ten or more when booked in advance. One chaperone is required for every 5 children, and required chaperones and teachers are admitted free.
Explore Ecosystems Museum Quest Activity
$9 per student
If you are looking for an activity to complete during your group’s visit, add the Explore Ecosystems Museum Quest at no additional cost. This self-paced, scavenger hunt-styled learning activity is best for ages 6-13, and guides youth to explore the plants and animals in our renowned Halls of African and North American Wildlife. Chaperones receive answer packets to support the group’s exploration.
