Pricing & Scheduling

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 60 students on site with a maximum of four programs per visit. Larger groups are welcome but must come on different days. Reservations must be made 2 weeks in advance. Rates include teachers and chaperones. Students must pack a lunch if the group plans to eat onsite. There are no concessions at the museum.

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.
