Bring your class to MDM!

Our major exhibit areas continue to provide many ways for you to reinforce your curriculum with context-rich, hands-on activities.

Consider adding on a Museum Adventure for a personalized, unique visit. We design these interdisciplinary programs to meet Common Core and NSSE standards, appeal to different learning styles, and engage everyone as an active participant. We'll add extra time to your field trip to enjoy your Adventure!

Plan Your Field Trip to MDM!

  • Minimum of 10 children to receive the group rate (or 5 Special Needs students)
  • Group admission charge: $4.50/child, $4.50/chaperone. Teachers pay no admission fees. (Regular admission: $7.50/person)
  • Homeschool groups: 1 adult free/10 children.
  • 1 chaperone required for every 5 children.
  • Group rate available for non-profit organizations only.

Choose from two field trip options:

1. Basic Discovery Tour (2 hours)
Museum staff meet your bus at the group entrance and give your students an orientation to the museum.  The remainder of your visit is a self-guided exploration of all three floors and seven exhibit areas.  We provide activity tips and questions to help your chaperones stay involved with the children as they go through the museum.

2. Museum Adventure Tour
Museum staff meet your bus at the group entrance and give your students an orientation to the museum.  Museum educators will present your pre-selected Museum Adventure(s), and the remainder of your visit is free time in the Museum.  If you are doing an Adventure program and/or having lunch in our snack room, we can extend your visit.

An additional fee is added to the group admission charge for each Museum Adventure.  Download our field trip brochure for details.

*Snack Room: If you are having lunch in our snack room, we automatically add 1/2 hour to your visit, except during the summer months.  Please note that requests to use our snack room for "brown bag" lunches must be made when you book your field trip.  The Snack Room is available on a "first-booked, first-served basis."  The Snack Room has beverage and snack food vending machines.

We look forward to helping you plan a successful and rewarding school year! Contact info@mainediscoverymuseum.org  or call the Museum to book your field trip today at (207) 262-7200.
