Field Trips

 

Thank you for your interest in our field trips at the Greensboro Children’s Museum.
Currently, there are two types of field trips available.

Discovery Visits and Programmed Field Trips

When visiting the Greensboro Children’s Museum, your group or class can explore on your own with a Discovery Visit or choose from one of our staff-led field trip programs.

Field trip programs are designed to meet NC Essential Standards and Core Curriculum.
