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.  Students also learn how to play traditional Chumash games.

We require 40 students to book a tour, and the maximum is 90.  Please see the  school tour program guide  for complete pricing and guidelines.

The school program fees are $6 per student without a craft activity, and $8 per student including a craft activity. No fee for teachers/aids.  Parent chaperones are $6. School tours run from 9:30am to 1:00pm, Tuesday through Friday.
