Field Trips

Inspire wonder, discovery, and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds with a field trip to the Natural History Museum!

We're excited to begin welcoming school groups back to the Natural History Museum! Explore our exhibit halls, get up-close-and-personal with specimens and artifacts, and experience our museums once again with your students on field trips! Self-guided field trips to the Natural History Museum are free for California Pre-K - 12 public or private school groups.

Please note: Due to construction for the future NHM Commons, starting March 23, the South Entrance of the Museum will be closed. Students & teachers will be redirected to enter at the East Gate Entrance (located off of the Rotunda across from the Rose Garden). Please see our Field Trip Guide Map for directions.
