Group Visits—Kids and Schools
At Carnegie Museum of Natural History, learning is an adventure like no other!
Our world-class research and unique scientific collection are at the heart of your group’s class, tour, or gallery experience.
Innovative, science-based programs encourage independent exploration and hands-on discoveries about natural history. There’s nowhere else in western Pennsylvania where your group can learn about science, nature, and world cultures all in one place!
How do I schedule my group program?
Build your field trip around one of our three core programs:
In each program, experienced museum staff orient your group to the museum with focused exploration of the topic of your choice. Core programs are available in a range of topics related to science, nature, and culture.
Tours, classes, and skill builders require four weeks’ advance registration.
September–March is a great time to schedule your group visit! All guided tours during these months include touchable objects and hands-on activities that enhance your group’s learning.
April–June is a prime season for school group visits. Touchable objects and hands-on activities are not offered during tours in these months. Book early to ensure you receive your preferred dates!
To receive group pricing, you must have a group of ten or more and your visit must be scheduled in advance through the Group Visits Office. Smaller groups pay the ten person minimum. Member discounts do not apply to guided tours.
School field trip funding support, including transportation, is sponsored for some programs by Target. To find out whether your school qualifies, call 412.622.3291 or email SchuckersE@carnegiemuseums.org.
Should hazardous conditions result in cancellation, announcements will be made on television stations KDKA, WTAE, and WPXI.
