Field Trip Fees
The Randall Museum charges for our field trip programs.
Fortunately, we have received funding from foundations and members of the
Randall Museum Friends to offset half the cost of the trips for public schools
only. Prices for public schools are $45 for Science programs and $20 for
Animal Presentations. Private schools will pay full price: $85 for
Science programs and $40 for Animal Presentations. Class size maximums are
30 children for all programs. Self-guided tours are available at a cost of
$15 per group, with a maximum of 30 per group.
Brown Paper Tickets charges a small purchasing fee of 2.5 percent of
the transaction. There is no cancellation policy. Tickets
purchased cannot be refunded.
The Randall Museum is committed to giving all children the opportunity to visit
and learn at the Randall Museum. We appreciate your understanding about
our new fees.
Appointments are available year-round for self-guided tours, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm.
