• Field Trips

  • Let us be your classroom

    Field trips let teachers and students explore classroom concepts in a fun, hands-on environment!
  • Leave the desks behind!

    A field trip to your Mid-Michigan Children’s Museum will help you apply Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations and Common Core State Standards to real-world adventures. Kiddos will explore, learn, and engage in an environment dedicated to supporting your teaching with hands-on experiences. Also, if you can’t come to us, we offer many of our in-house lessons as traveling extension lessons.
