“I just wanted to reiterate what an
excellent experience my students and I had at
NMIH today. Your rapport with the students,
knowledge of the exhibits and history, and the quality
of the exhibits and museum setup made it an
overall outstanding educational experience.”


-Nancy Dean, 5th grade teacher at Good Shepherd Christian Academy


School field trips are available for grades K-12. All field trips are 2-hour experiences that are led by an experienced Museum Educator. Students are guided through a curated and interactive tour of the Museum galleries. The experience may include S.T.E.A.M. hands-on activities, facilitated discussions and debates, oral history, and workshops.
