The Ward Museum strives to offer dynamic, hands-on programs to fit your needs and to assist you in meeting state guidelines. We offer a variety of age-appropriate education programs for early childhood, elementary, middle and high school students on topics of art, culture and nature. Choose from a full slate of innovative and engaging field trip programs, outreach courses and museum tours.
The museum can accommodate up to 40 students per field trip. We respectfully ask groups of more than 40 students to be split into separate field trips in order to provide a more positive experience to all participants. Reservations must be made 3 weeks in advance. While we are happy to provide spaces for students to eat lunch, the museum cannot provide food for field trips.
If you are unable to visit the Ward Museum we can bring programs to your school, after school program, camp or organization. Additional travel fees may be applied to school visits.
