Capitol Park Museum

Field Trips

Capitol Park Museum’s field trips and education programs are designed to be interactive and fun-filled expeditions for visitors of all ages. Upon arrival, the students are given an overview of the museum. Students may then search the galleries as they become explorers in age-appropriate treasure hunts, discover interactive displays and artifacts, and learn the history, geography and culture of the state.


School tours are free for all students and teachers. Capitol Park Museum requires one adult chaperone for every 10 students, and additional chaperones over a one to five student ration may be charged.

All school and youth groups with more than 10 students must make a reservation at least two weeks in advance.

Treasure Hunts

Complete with maps, puzzles and seek-and-find adventures, our treasure hunts are perfect for getting your group engaged in every aspect of our museum exhibits. You will move from floor to floor, seeking out specific details within our exhibits and learning along the way.
