Field Trips

New Discoveries with Every Visit!

At Minnesota Children's Museum, we pack educational activities into endless amounts of fun. We ensure every visit is loaded with opportunities for investigating, playing and learning. We create an educational environment infused with excitement and interactions, making the Museum one of the top destinations in Minnesota for educator and student visits.

Field Trips to the Museum

There are no reserved group visits available during 2015-2016 school year due to our renovation project. Group visits are planned to resume in the summer of 2016. We are expanding the museum, reimagining our galleries and adding wonderful amenities for our visitors. Our project is a major investment in the power of play to create a 21st century children’s museum for all of Minnesota to enjoy. Learn more about the expansion here.
