Select a Mission for Your Students!

Our summer educational options are listed below!  Contact our Education Coordinator to arrange your trip. You can reach us by calling 402-944-3100 ext. 204, or emailing the Education Department.

Our staffing ratio is one Museum Educator per 30 students that attend the field trip. Schools must schedule a field trip at least two weeks in advance. The minimum number of 10 students is required, and the museum requests that the total number of students not exceed 100 students per group. Groups larger than 100 students or small than 10 students must contact the Education Coordinator prior to scheduling a field trip.

Late Arrival Policy | Your school field trip reserves time with our Education Staff, with this in consideration, we cannot guarantee staff or content for late arrivals. A 15 minute grace period will be observed. We recommend arriving 15 minutes prior to the beginning of your Field Trip to check-in, pay, and use the facilities.

Pricing |  $7.00 per student, $7 per teacher (1 free teacher for every 10 kids), and $7 per chaperone. Please let us know if the school will be paying for the chaperones or if they are responsible for their own admission to the Museum.

Payment | Payment can be processed via credit card, cash or check. Full payment is due prior to OR on the day of your field trip. No refunds for weather or special circumstances; we will instead reschedule your field trip for another date. Payment is required for the number of students confirmed at the time of your confirmation call with our staff, not the time of attendance.
