UPDATE regarding 2013 summer visits: Our summer group visit schedule is filling up fast! Please note that we are only offering self-guided student group visits for the summer of 2013; we are not able to offer guided summer programs at this time. If you are interested in booking a self-guided summer field trip, please check available dates first by contacting
, Youth Programs and Scheduling Coordinator, at (206) 324-1126 x113.
MOHAI offers a range of hands-on field trip programs to school and youth groups in grades K-12; see below for descriptions of each of our on-site programs. Visits must be booked at least two weeks in advance (and generally more) 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.
