Educators & Groups

The Discovery Museum is the best place for field trips and outreach programs! 

As an educator – either as a parent or classroom teacher – we know you are always looking for ways to enhance your students’ learning process and to give them lasting educational experiences. In addition to the interactive, hands-on exhibits and special presentations at the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum, our staff has developed a wide variety of virtual field trips and outreach programs that focus on the sciences and mathematics, the humanities, and the arts. All of our exhibits and programs meet Virginia Standards of Learning requirements and Next Generation standards. Our programs are lively, engaging, educational, and FUN!

Bringing a group to the Discovery Museum is fun and easy.

The Discovery Museum represents hours of learning and hands-on fun for your entire classroom or group. We can facilitate stand-alone field trips, field trips with educational programs, or even outreach programs that travel to your location.

If you have questions or would like to book your group with the Discovery Museum, please email or call 540-722-2020 x106.

To hold your reservation for a field trip or outreach, a non-refundable deposit of $50.00 is required per group. All changes or cancellations must be made at least two weeks in advance of the program or party start date to receive a refund. A $50 cancellation fee will be deducted from the refund amount. Cancellations made less than two weeks in advance will not receive a refund. The Museum will make every effort to reschedule field trips canceled due to weather.
