Special Education Field Trip Tips

TIPS

All ages are welcome to The Muse for Field Trips!  We have had several highschool and adult age special education groups that have visited and loved it!


Some groups like to skip the classroom because of time limits and a desire for more of the hands on exhibit play time.  If you would like to have a classroom option, we recommend one of the following:

  • Class Option A
  • Class Option B

The planetarium show is also optional based on your needs.  We offer the following modifications:
  • Noice cancelling headphones
  • Shorter star shows (digital or live-guided)
  • "Lights On" shows--we provide dimmed lights to your preferred level

​Please let us know how we can improve the quality of your student's experience!

Minimum fee DOES NOT apply.

Afternoon trips August-February are more calm.


PRICING
  • Program Staff are admitted FREE for the field trip.
  • Students (and additional adults or siblings) $6.00 each IF fees are paid through the school/program.*
  • Field trips fees cover scheduled time only.

Things to Know
The fee is $10.00* for each field trip guest paying at the door, separately from the school/program.
Muse Memberships do not cover field trip programs.
Other discounts and coupons do not apply to field trip programming.
Please encourage additional adults to pay through the school.

Field Trip Cancellation Policy
If you must cancel or change your field trip plans, please let us know as soon as possible. Field trips cancelled or postponed with fewer than 14 days' notice will be subject to a $25 administrative fee. "No-show" field trips will be subject to a $50 administrative fee. Cancellations or rescheduled trips due to weather that closes or delays school will not result in a fee. We will make every possible attempt to reschedule trips cancelled because of weather. Late arrivals may result in reduction of field trip programming.
