If your school is thinking about a field trip for your students, look no further than the Bayou Country Children’s Museum. We have so much to offer for an outing of fun! At the BCCM, your students will have the opportunity to touch, explore, play and discover in each of our exhibit areas. Each area is filled with interactive stations designed for exploration and discovery, and provides inspiration for teachers on hands-on learning!
Plan the Perfect Field Trip!
CHOOSE YOUR FIELD TRIP TYPE
Determine if you want a Standard or Theme Field Trip. Standard Field Trips offer educated play time in the museum with a visit to Safety-ville and are $5 per person. Themed field trips also offer educated play time in the museum and a visit to Safety-ville, but also include a story and either a craft or experiment to go along with the theme of your choice. Themed field trips are $7 per person. Teachers are free!
