Self-Guided Exploration

August 2015 - May 2016: Add a bit of education and fun to your school field trip. Ask about our Self-Guided Exploration!

Looking to add a bit of education and fun to your school field trip? Ask about our Self-Guided Exploration, a new option for school groups on a tight schedule. The Self-Guided Exploration offers Early Arrival and Expedited Check-in to help your group maximize their field trip time. However, Expedited Check-in is available all day. An Educator will meet your group at the front entrance and assist with check-in. The Educator will escort the group into the facility, highlight special activities, and answer any questions. Each student receives an activity guide and pencil.

Age: Grades K-12

Cost: $1 per student over the cost of group admission

Available at the Zoo or Aquarium Monday – Friday
Expedited Check-in available beginning at 9:30am
