Field Trips

With 14 acres of exhibits - as well as Giant Dome Theater films and hands-on Learning Labs - the Museum provides a wealth of onsite and virtual learning opportunities.

Take a Museum field trip without leaving your classroom.

When you can't come to MSI, take a virtual field trip with us instead. Participate in a facilitated Learning Lab livestream, or take a live virtual tour of some of our most popular exhibits. And check out our free online STEM learning tools for new ways to engage.
