Valdez public and private school teachers, Valdez homeschoolers and rural teachers may plan a field trip to the museum. Some field trips combine a museum visit, and access to remarkable artifacts and original works of art with a walking tour. Others integrate hands-on activities including art-making and writing.
Field trips dovetail with Alaskan standards and include these themes:
- Native culture
- Gold Rush
- Old Town
- Earthquakes and Tsunamis
- Geography and Natural History
- Alaskan Art
- Transportation and road building
Field trips take place during the school year, Tuesday through Friday, from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. For groups of 10 or more, please schedule a minimum of 2 weeks in advance.
School field trips are FREE. For every 5 children, one adult chaperone may visit at no charge. Additional adults cost $5.00.
