Special Exhibitions

Special Exhibitions offered below are self-guided opportunities to explore reservation-only spaces in the museum. These popular exhibits have space limitations and require this additional reservation. While you and your group would be exploring the exhibit on your own, we have free downloadable Learning Resources (including activities, videos, lesson plans, teacher guides, and more!) to help you prepare an itinerary for your time in the exhibits.

Please note: Due to current COVID-19 protocols and limited capacity, all onsite field trips are self-guided and add-ons such as Butterfly & Spider Pavilion, Dinosaur Encounters, and 3D Theater are currently unavailable to school groups.
