DIY field trips are a great option for preschools and early elementary classrooms looking for a shared educational experience. DIY Visits provide timed entry and departure at a discounted rate for groups of 10-80 children plus chaperones. This option provides up to 2.5 hours at the Museum and the flexibility to explore the exhibits at your own pace.
