Field Trips

Field Trips can either be at the museum, virtual, or we can come to your classroom to lead a lesson!


In-Person Field Trips to EUREKA!

District 51 Schools*: Free of Charge (Excludes D51 Charters)
Non-District 51 groups: $6 student admission OR $9 student admission + classroom activity (Group minimum of 11 students)

  • Field trips are generally booked in two-hour slots.
  • Classroom lesson options are not available on Fridays due to student programming.
  • The visit may include an interactive 1 hour classroom lab activity and 1 hour of exploration in our hands-on exhibit hall.
  • Large groups (above 30) are typically split into two groups, and while one half receives the presentation, the other explores the exhibits. We are able to accommodate groups of up to 120 students. We look forward to seeing you!
  • There should be 1 chaperone for every 10 students, but more are always welcome!
  • There is no charge for chaperones.

Please note, multiple schools may be visiting at the same time.

Bus Parking
Buses may drop students off at EUREKA! but will need to park off-site. A good location is Lincoln Park. Please see the map for more details.
