Teachers: Are you concerned about the rising prices of transportation and limited funds for field trips? Below are some links to look at regarding grants that might apply to your class/school!
**Please note that Exploration Station is not responsible for these grants nor will be applying for these grants for teachers/schools. It is up to the teacher/school to complete the process if they so choose to move forward after further research.
Walk-in groups will pay the general admission fees.
Children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult while at the Exploration Station...a children's museum. And, on the same note, adults must be accompanied and supervised by a child in order to visit the museum.
*Donation Afternoons do not apply to groups of 10 or more.
