Virtual Field Trips

Miss visiting the Museum? Are you looking for something fun and educational to do? Now with our virtual field trips (VFT) you can visit Archie and company from the comfort of your home! Our educators and scientists interact with your family on a variety of science and natural history topics through live, interactive videoconferencing programs.

Every Tuesday in April we will feature a new topic and explore a different part of the Museum. We even have three different registration times available so you can pick a virtual field trip that best fits your schedule:  10:00 am, 12:00 pm, and 2:00 pm CST.
