Pre-visit the Museum to pick lunch locations in Exposition Park, prioritize exhibits students should see, note reservation locations, and walk through any Lesson Plans and Activities you are going to use. California teachers receive General Admission with a school ID or pay stub, so this trip will be free!
Tell students about what to expect during their visit. Outline the schedule, go over Museum expectations and activities (see Exhibits & Programming for more info on reservations you might have), and get pumped for an awesome day!
Print an NHM School Visit Guide (Chaperone Guide also available in Spanish). Fill out reservation times and important information, and give a copy to every adult on your trip. Ask chaperones to look it over before entering the Museum so they know what to expect.
