Scheduling & Requirements

Don't get left out! Book your field trip early as the schedule books up quickly after state testing in March. Group bookings can be made, but only for 15 or more students. Minimum fee of $120 per field trip.


To book a field trip, please call Lisa, Museum and Program Coordinator, at 850-664-1261. Please have your preferred date and two alternate dates you would like to book on hand before calling. We will email you a confirmation of your booking.


We require that one chaperone accompany every 10 students, and the chaperone must stay with their student groups at all times during the visit. Chaperones perform a vital function by reading the explanation that accompanies each exhibit on the self-guided tour and by controlling the hands-on experience of each student group.


  • $12 per student; 1 free chaperone per 10 students, additional chaperones $6 each; no more than 25 chaperones per 100 students due to space constraints; teachers are always free.

  • Minimum fee of $120 per field trip.

  • Same-day field trips are limited to up to 105 students.

  • Field trips that do not arrive within 30 minutes of their scheduled arrival time will be charged a $100 service fee to accommodate scheduling issues.

  • No Show/No Call bookings are charged a $100 cancellation fee.

  • Okaloosa County only: up to 6 free economically disadvantaged students per booking; must be specifically requested at time of booking.
