Field Trips

schedule your field trip & learn through play!


The Grand Rapids Children’s Museum is a great place to have fun and learn through play. The Grand Rapids Children’s Museum is dedicated to building minds through play. GRCM is a place where children rule, and all are welcome to play, imagine, create and collaborate. Research shows that play is critically important to the healthy emotional and physical development of children. At GRCM, children can learn through open-ended, hands-on play through interactive exhibits. Field trips include use of the entire museum for a 2-hour period. Please note lunch rooms are not available, and field trips must be scheduled two weeks in advance.

  • $8 per student

  • Field trips are 2 hours, AM & PM time slots available

  • Days Available: Mondays and Wednesdays

  • Must be scheduled 14 days in advance


museum manners

Help us ensure that all of our guests have fun! You can do your part by:

  • using inside voices

  • using walking feet

  • staying together - grown-ups and children need to stay together at all times; especially when riding the elevator and in our gift shop

  • staying in the age appropriate areas of our museum; our Wee Discovery Zone is for our littlest friends (3 and under) 

    *please note that if groups are not able to follow the museum manners, they may be asked to leave early.
