Chaperones provide critical supervision and support during your field trip. In fact, in many of our programs, chaperones work alongside museum staff to oversee the activities. Prior to your visit, talk with chaperones about the importance of their participation. Also, due to insurance regulations, we cannot allow siblings or children not registered in your class to attend the program.


History Park has several picnic tables and lawn areas to enjoy your lunches.
