The Wyoming State Museum delivers free On-Grounds Field Trips to more than 4,000 students a year. These classes utilize technology, human artifacts, animal biofacts, small group activities, and museum scavenger hunts to create world-class educational programming for students of all ages.
The times below show how long is required for each program's full curriculum. While each program is a little different, most programs include things like an educational lesson, hands-on activities, scavenger hunt, and time to explore the museum.
As a general rule, field trips for PreK - 2nd Grade will normally be 1.5 hours to 2 hours... while field trips for 3rd Grade and older will be 2 hours to 2.5 hours. However, each On-Grounds Field Trip can be shortened to fit time restraints that teachers may have.
The information below also shows the suggested age for each program. All programs can be aged up or down, depending on the students’ grade level, for any of the grades listed.
Most of the museum’s On-Grounds Field Trips can also be taught as Virtual Field Trips.
