Register Your Field Trip Group

Schools and community groups 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. At this time we’re unable to offer tours or access to 3D movies to field trip groups.

Field trips are available to groups of at least 15 students with the appropriate number of chaperones. Beginning May 1st, there will be no charge for additional chaperones for Illinois schools.

Due to current COVID safety measures, groups cannot eat lunch in the building but can request a 15-minute snack break. We will provide a space for students to social distance, remove masks, and eat.
