Field Trips

The Springfield Museums do what few other museums can. We combine art, history, science and Dr. Seuss into one fun-filled day of engaging experiences that reinforce critical thinking and observation skills through inquiry-based learning. We offer a broad range of school programs for all grades and interest levels and all programs link directly to the Massachusetts State Curriculum Frameworks and help students prepare for standardized testing.

Field trips require a two week minimum advanced notice.
