Explore Puget Sound’s unique history through a range of game-based programs in MOHAI’s immersive new galleries. MOHAI’s highly facilitated hands-on field trip programs use authentic historic materials to promote teamwork, creativity, communication, innovation, visual literacy, critical thinking, observation and problem solving skills. All MOHAI’s guided programs are aligned with Washington’s Essential Academic Learning Requirements. Click on a program title below for descriptions of each of our on-site programs.

Visits must be booked at least two weeks in advance (and generally earlier) to guarantee availability. Advance booking is required; MOHAI does not guarantee admission to student groups of 10 or more without reservations. A minimum ratio of one adult chaperone for every five students is required for all visits. Groups bringing more than one class at a time to our guided programs will rotate through the educator-led lesson, a self-guided gallery hunt, and (for four-class visits) a craft activity in our Learning Center. 

Scholarships for waived or reduced field trip costs and bus reimbursement are available to schools with 40% or more of the student population eligible for the Federal Free/Reduced Lunch Program. Please indicate your eligibility when reserving your field trip.
