School Groups

Students will arrive at the Museum by way of a new loop nestled in City Park that was created for school bus drop-off and pick-up. Then, they will cross the beautiful Boettcher Plaza, featuring new public art, to enter the Museum and be welcomed in the vibrant Science Atrium.


Once inside, students will enjoy Field Trip Adventures in the state-of-the-art Exploration Studios. Field Trip Adventures are a brand-new program of preplanned, three to three-and-a-half hour field trips designed to maximize student learning and support the new Colorado Academic Standards.
