Take your class on a Virtual Field Trip with Carnegie Museum of Natural History! Virtual Field Trip packages include prepackaged blog posts for reading assignment discussions, curated short videos with museum scientists and educators, and activity guides for “do-it-yourself” activities that can be done in the classroom or at home with commonly available materials.
Step 1. Before You Book Your Virtual Field Trip – Gather Information
- Virtual Field Trips must be booked four weeks in advance. This allows us to coordinate with you regarding the unique digital needs of your group.
- Have a preferred start date for your access to begin.
- Have the number of children and adults attending your field trip. Purchase of a Virtual Field Trip includes 4 weeks of access to the resources associated with your program.
- Have the number of households who will need to access the materials.
We have scholarship opportunities for schools and organizations that qualify. Apply for a scholarship for a group visit or field trip.
Step 2. Choose Your Format
- Virtual Field Trips are designed to be completed on your own time—no need to schedule your group to all participate at the same time.
- If you’d like a live, virtual tour of the exhibit space associated with your program, we can schedule that for you. Be sure to indicate your interest in this option when you request your virtual program.
Step 3. Pick Your Field Trip Theme
Take a dinosaur virtual field trip! We’ll explore the premiere exhibition, Dinosaur Armor, on display now at Carnegie Museum of Natural History. Museum experts guide you through the exhibit with 360-degree camera views of extraordinary specimens spanning 500 million years. Learn about the evolutionary development of body armor in dinosaurs, fish, reptiles, mammals and more. Explore topics like adaptation, defense, and display, and compare extinct species to modern animals.
