Field Trips

The DoSeum actively supports the work of local educators and their students, which is why we welcome school groups to engage with our exhibits and programming. We have created accessible opportunities for children to interact with our educational and fun space with guidance from DoSeum staff to ensure an optimal experience. A DoSeum Field Trip means partnership with teachers to help find an experience that aligns to students' needs in STEM, the arts, and early literacy. It means joyful learning and discovery through active, student-led inquiry.

The DoSeum offers two Field Trip opportunities: The Field Experience and The Group Visit. Please read the descriptions of both options before determining which is best for your class.

Field Experiences

During a Field Experience, kids will engage with one or more of our major exhibit galleries during a themed experience. Students will engage with DoSeum educators, their own educators, and chaperones on the exhibit floor for a guided experience. They may also engage in a group learning experience in one of our classrooms, and get time to explore on their own terms. 

The DoSeum offers both funded and non-funded Field Experiences. Funded Field Experiences will receive scholarships through DoSeum For All funding. Schools may apply for funding if they meet the following criteria:

  • 80%+ Title 1 students (based on Title 1 qualifications from Texas Education Agency)
  • Specialized programs to advance students in STEM, the arts, or literacy

 

 
Group Visits

We recognize every visit to The DoSeum is an educational one, and welcome school groups, camps, and other organizations to visit us as groups for self-guided exploration of our museum galleries. Our exhibits are thoughtfully designed to accommodate a wide range of ages, interests, and developmental stages from birth to age 11. 

Group Visits can be scheduled Monday thru Friday from the time the museum opens until it closes. We require a minimum of 15 people to give the discounted group rate.  Group Visits are discounted from our regular admission price at $10 per person. All children visiting with groups must be accompanied by an adult while visiting The DoSeum, and we require 1 adult chaperone for every 5 children. Group Visit reservations must be made before 2 weeks of the requested visit date, and can only be made by completing our online form. To ensure a positive experience for everyone, we will provide Group Visits during the school year with a schedule to follow during their visit. While Group Visits are self-guided, we request groups follow this schedule to avoid overcrowding of our gallery spaces, and a joyful visit for all.
