LCM requires one (1) adult chaperone for every four (4) children. Accompanying adults must be 18 years old or older to qualify as a chaperone. We strongly encourage schools to work within this ratio in order to ensure that students have the best possible field trip experience. All adults must be registered with their class. Adults not registered in advance must pay museum general admission cost. Unregistered parents may be turned away due to capacity regulations.
Upon availability, LCM offers a private lunch space for groups at the end of a scheduled field trip if field trip lunches are ordered through Dickie Brennan & Co. The lunch space must be booked in advance and box lunches must be ordered at least 5 days in advance of your field trip. Please indicate on your field trip registration form if you would like to order box lunches.
If your group is bringing your own lunches, space is available on our event lawn for a picnic-style lunch.
Bus drop off is located in front of the museum on Henry Thomas Drive. After drop off busses should park in designated bus parking across from City Park’s Storyland.
Your group will have a designated amount of time to explore and enjoy four of our exciting galleries, Follow That Food, Dig Into Nature, Move With The River and Make Your Mark during their visit.
Children will learn the epic journey food takes as they go from the fields and coastal waters to international ports and stores and finally to their fork in our Follow That Food gallery. In our Dig Into Nature gallery, children get an up-close look at the wild natural world we are so lucky to call home. The Make Your Mark gallery empowers children to make their own mark and become the mark makers of the future. Go hands-on with the mighty Mississippi river as children learn about its amazing journey from the Twin Cities to the Gulf of Mexico.
