School Program

Our popular school program includes a tour of the museum, a nature walk to the replica Chumash village site, and a chance for students to make a craft.  Storytelling and games are included, time permitting.

We require 40 students to book a tour, and the maximum is 70.  The school program costs $8 per student. There is no charge for teachers and adult chaperones, and there is a limit of one adult per ten students. School tours run from 9:30am to 1:00pm, Monday through Friday.

Students can enjoy their lunches at our outdoor picnic tables. Our Museum Gift Shop carries a number of inexpensive nature- and native arts-inspired gifts for students to bring home as a reminder of their special tour.

School Bus Parking

There are two school bus parking spaces available at the front of the museum parking lot, which can accomodate large buses.
