Field Trip

Reserve the museum for your special event

Bring your group for some Big Fun!

We love hosting field trip groups at the Black Earth Children's Museum! Our community-supported museum strives to make your field trip experience pleasant and engaging.


Our field trip rate is $4/student and there is no charge for teachers/adults. 


Typically field trip length is 1.5-2 hours. 


While we recognize that most groups prefer a morning field trip, for groups that are able to schedule a field trip in the afternoon, we can accommodate private field trip visits to the museum on Tuesday  and Thursday afternoons. 


There are a number of options we have to make your field trip special - depending on student age and group size, we may offer a couple of special activities that we set up in our multi-purpose room. We do have space for lunch or snack - we have an indoor multi-purpose room as well and an outdoor covered patio. Another wonderful option when weather permits is that there is a covered pavilion with picnic tables at Black Earth Veterans Memorial Park which is 1 block down from the museum. Depending upon the size of the group, some field trip groups will split into classrooms or simply in 1/2 and students spend 1/2 of their time at the museum and 1/2 at the playground and covered pavilion. 


Please take a look at our field trip calendar and use the form to indicate preferred field trip dates and times. 

Your group can enjoy the entire Black Earth Children's Museum on Tuesdays and Thursdays after 1:00 all on their own!

We recommend age groups in the 4 to 8 year old range, and a optimal size of 25 kids. Larger groups can be accommodated with special arrangements.

Please note: We do not accept field trip groups during designated spring break or winter break weeks due to visitor volumes. 

We offer a fun option for your groups next outing.

This place was great! My kids are 5, 2, and 11 months and the Children's Museum had something for each one of them! The museum has a good mix of educational and exercise oriented activities and was well priced for the experiences available.
My daughters (1 and 5) love it here! It's a great mood of activities without being too large - I feel totally comfortable letting the 5yo go of by herself while baby sis plays in the toddler space. Also, Evie recently took part in an art class offered in the upstairs studio - she had a blast and was so proud of the piece she created!
My 3 kids age 7,6,4 and I all had a wonderful time at the Black Earth Children’s Museum over winter break! Great membership price, as well as a great local business. The kids kept entertained and did not want to leave and I felt safer not having to keep my eye on each one of them every single minute. It’s smaller but it’s worth the trip out to Black Earth!
