Field Trips

There’s no comparing the awe-inspiring nature of a museum visit to a typical day in the classroom. Bring your students to experience hands-on, real world examples of science and the maritime industry. On site field trips include self-guided tours of the Museum and the Battleship Wisconsin, access to traveling exhibitions and more.
