Schools and community groups in Illinois serving Pre-K–12th grade students can register for a field trip by completing this form at least 14 days before your desired visit date. After you submit a registration form, we will review availability for your visit, create a group reservation, and email you a confirmation within two days.

Field trips are available to groups of at least 15 students with the appropriate number of chaperones. In order to ensure that groups have a great visit, pre-K through 5th-grade students must be accompanied by a minimum of one adult for every five students. Students in 6th through 12th grade must be accompanied by a minimum of one adult for every ten students.

Groups that are interested in eating lunch at the museum must register for a lunch time prior to their field trip. For more information about field trip reservations or questions about your visit:
