Field trips to The Schiele Museum are an exceptional way to supplement classroom instruction while meeting state curriculum standards. The Schiele provides unique learning opportunities for student engagement in science, culture, and natural history. Students have access to permanent exhibits, traveling exhibits, the outdoor spaces on the nature trail, and an array of educational programs.

In addition to exploring exhibits, enhance the educational impact of your field trip with our additional program selections. Most programs last 45 minutes to an hour and topics include science, nature, social studies, history, anthropology, and more!
