Inspire Curiosity Together
Your Guide to the Museum
Book your field trip
The Perot Museum field trip experience is one unlike any other. Through their adventure, students will gain insights to boost their knowledge, capture their imaginations, and inspire innovation. And you can breathe a sigh of relief — we've got all the resources you need to plan your perfect STEAM day.
How long is the average field trip?
We recommend about two hours for visits to the permanent exhibits, but this is self-guided, so you may spend as little or as much time as you like. Films range from 20-40 minutes each. Lab-based programs and auditorium programs are 45 minutes. Allow time in your schedule for a picnic lunch if you plan to be here for several hours.
Where do we eat lunch during a field trip?
Please plan to picnic outside on the Plaza. In the case of inclement weather, Museum staff will do their best to assist in finding covered or indoor space for your group to have lunch. Lunches and coolers may be stored on your buses if they are in the bus parking lot.
