We require at least one chaperone for every 8 students; these chaperones are admitted free of charge and will accompany students through the entire field trip experience. Additional chaperones are welcome, however, they may not all be able to participate in the field trip experience equally due to space restrictions in the exhibition spaces. Please let us know ahead of time if you will have additional chaperones.
Field Trips are available Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Groups of 10 or more should schedule their visit at least two weeks in advance.
Indiana Experience student group admission is $3.50 per student.
