Field Trips

Create an experience you and your students will never forget!

Field Trips
~Each field trip lasts for 2 hours~

A field trip to Great Explorations provides the perfect combination of playing and learning for teachers and students. Teachers will appreciate that our exhibits and programs support and extend classroom learning in a hands-on, minds-on way and students will love the time out of the classroom to play and explore.

To add your field trip to our calendar, you must book online. After booking your trip, look out for a confirmation email solidifying the details of your visit. Your reservation is not complete until you receive a confirmation email message. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact
