Information For
Planning Field Trips

Programs  last about two hours and may include two of the topics  listed on the following pages.  If you have questions about the suitability of a topic or require a custom  program, please ask to speak with one of our educational staff. Due to  space limitations we are unable to offer tours of two programs from the same letter group--A or B.   Program titles are color coded as follows:

     Introductory talk             Hands on Activity
Audio-visual program      Programs for grades K - 2

Tours  of  50 students or less may be arranged for our normal weekday operating hours--9:30 to 4:30, Tuesday through Friday.

Reservations  should be made at least one to two months in advance.  Please call the museum at  (516) 822-7505.  A few openings may be  available for last minute scheduling.

Payment is required at the time of the tour (unless other arrangements are made in advance).  The cost per student is currently $8.00 There is no charge for Hicksville students, public school or private.  Some programs, as noted, may also require a class fee to cover the costs of materials for special projects or collections that go back to the school.

Supervision by one adult (teacher or chaperone) for every ten children is required;  there is no charge for these adults.  Any adults in excess of the number required will be charged $8.00 each.  Groups which by their nature require more supervision or help will not be assessed these extra fees  if the museum is notified in advance.
