Field Trips

A field trip is a journey by a group of people to a place away from their normal environment. It is wonderful to leave the classroom and visit a special place for a day as a class. Museums, zoos, historic sites, police and fire stations, sports arenas, parks – is there any place a field trip can’t go?

The purpose of the trip is usually observation for education, to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities. KGMC offers just that. From our permanent Regional History Exhibits, and Research Library, the KSB Miniatures Collection – where you can explore worlds within worlds, to the Changing Exhibits Gallery – where there is always something new, the Museum Center puts forth an educational experience that will be remembered always!
