Field Trip at the Museum Reservation Form

A Desert Museum field trip is a great way to bone up on biology or rock out with geology as science comes alive for your students. Desert Museum visits help reinforce your teaching of Adaptations, Structure and Function, Ecology, Ecosystems, Conservation Issues, Earth History and Rocks and Minerals. This is a self-guided tour.

If you’d like to add Stingray Touch or a Theater Program to your visit, fill out the Self-Guided Visit with Add On Experiences form instead.

Please read this important General Information (opens in new window) before filling out the reservation form.
