Before You Visit

Below are some tools to help you navigate your day.

Plan Activities

Come to the Museum for a free pre-visit to plan your day and pick which exhibits you want your students to see or do. Just bring your California school ID or pay stub to recieve free admission.

We also have free Lesson Plans and Activities available for download to help you integrate the field trip with student learning from the classroom.

Get Students Ready

Talk with students about what they can expect during their field trip. Outline the day's schedule, go over Museum expectations and activities (check out Exhibits & Programs for more info on reservations you might have), and get them pumped for an awesome day!

Prepare Adults

Print a Chaperone Guide and fill out reservation information. Then, copy one for every adult on your trip. Ask your chaperones to look it over before entering the Museum so they know what to expect during their day!

Consider including an Exposition Park Map, too. The map includes parking information, directions to other museums, sites in the park, and space on the back to assign student groups and communicate important contact and meeting information for your group.
