Book a Field Trip!

  • Custom lessons available with advanced notice for $25

  • SMALLab Learning available across all disciplines and for all grade levels

  • Chemistry Demonstrations (visual only)

  • Hands-on lessons contain science, space, simple machine, and/or biology components

  • Technology-based lessons contain robotics and/or engineering components


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 $100 per field trip.


To book a program, please call Lisa, Museum and Program Coordinator, at 850.664.1261, between 10am and 4pm weekdays.


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.
