Homeschool Field Trips
Due to the impacts of COVID-19, the Museum understands there have been and continue to be changes to group sizes to ensure the health and safety of all participants. Following current NYS guidance, the Museum is happy to serve your group at our reduced group rate levels with a minimum of 10 participants per group. Groups will be capped at 15 participants (any more than 15 would be split into a secondary group) to maintain social distancing. Masks are required for all children and parents.
“Genius is an exceedingly common human quality, probably natural to most of us.” ~ John Taylor Gatto
The Cradle of Aviation Museum recognizes the unique nature of home school groups and is pleased to be able to offer a variety of options to make your visit a memorable one. All groups, regardless of size, are encouraged to take advantage of special free downloadable resources. Available resources include scavenger hunts and educator guides for exhibitions and films.
Home school groups can benefit from school group rates and activities when they bring in 25 or more students*. To take advantage of this offer parents must present a confirmation notice of each child's State Letter of Intent. During your visit not only can you explore the Museum’s galleries, see a Giant Screen film, or Planetarium Show but you can also enjoy museum classes. The same school group rates also apply to chaperones.
