School Groups Overview

School groups include students in grades K-8 who are home-schooled or enrolled in public or private schools.

The Florida Museum offers the following field trip opportunities for school groups:

  • Guided School Programs
    Join our Museum docents for hands-on classroom activities and interactive walks through our state-of-the-art exhibits and outdoor natural areas.
  • Self-Guided Visits
    Suitable for groups that prefer to visit the Museum without the benefit of docents or staff.

How to Schedule a Program

  • Select your guided or self-guided program.
  • Identify your preferred program date and time, as well as several alternate days.
  • Determine the number of students and chaperones. One chaperone for every 10 children is recommended.
  • Schedule your program online.
  • A confirmation packet will be emailed to you. Review the confirmation packet and contact us if any information is incorrect. Please note that your visit is not confirmed until you receive a confirmation from the Museum.
