Field Trips

Book Your Trip Today!

Our field trip policies have changed. Limited staff support is available and we cannot guarantee that your group will have a guided tour experience. We recommend that all groups be prepared for a self-guided/teacher-led visit. We are still committed to providing you the most enjoyable and educational visit possible, so please reach out to our staff in advance if you have special interests or would like to make specific classroom connections. We will communicate with you about which exhibits and materials will best meet your needs.

Field Trip Policies:
  • School visits are scheduled on Thursdays from 10:30 am–12:30 pm and 1–3 pm. Please submit your request via the form below to ensure your desired date and time. If the calendar is full, please contact us directly ( to discuss our waitlist or other potential alternatives.
  • We can accommodate groups of up to 75 students.
  • Please submit your request at least three weeks in advance of your desired date. If you need to modify your reservation (arrival time, group size, etc.), please notify the ITC in advance of your scheduled visit. If you need to cancel, we appreciate at least 48 hours’ notice.
  • The Back 40 historic buildings are closed for the foreseeable future.
  • We offer outdoor facilities for group-supplied lunches. For the safety of our collections, we are unable to allow groups to eat indoors at the ITC. In case of inclement weather, your group is welcome to wait indoors, but we cannot allow food. Please take weather into account when preparing for your visit and make alternate arrangements if conditions require them.
