The Gottesman Center for Science Teaching and Learning is excited to offer a series of free, hands-on events for school groups of all ages on a variety of topics. Make the most of your field trip by participating in these events, which will allow students the opportunity to engage in hands-on investigations, specimen and artifact observations, and much more while exploring the Museum's world-renowned scientific and cultural collections and exhibition halls.
While you must pre-register your group in order to visit the museum and any special exhibitions, no additional reservations for the school group drop-in events are necessary: all offerings are first-come, first served. Admission to the Museum and the special exhibits are free for groups from New York City schools, however, pre-registration, reservations, and complimentary tickets are required.
To book your trip on one of these days, or any day of the year, visit www.amnh.org or call Central Reservations at 212-769-5200.
