School Field Trips
Transportation is one of the most central aspects of our life, yet we often take it for granted. We walk, we bike, we fly, we drive automobiles, and we ride buses and trains, often without reflecting upon how these technologies influence our society and personal lives. Seashore Trolley Museum's exhibits and programs foster new perspective on transportation history in order to better educate citizens to face some of our contemporary social challenges.
Your Experience at the Museum
The Museum's volunteer docents will be available to lead your group and answer questions. Your visit can include:
|The permanent gallery exhibit : Public Transportation Connecting|
|Maine Communities in our Visitor Center Gallery;|
|A on a restored historic streetcar;|
|A visit to at least one of the exhibit carbarns.|
If you plan on spending the day at the Museum, students should bring their own snacks and lunches. There are picnic tables in a covered area outside the Visitor Center, and in case of inclement weather, space is provided in the Exhibit Gallery.
Planning Your Visit
The Museum is open to field trips May through October, but please note reservations are required. We're flexible to your schedule, arrive at the Museum any time between 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and plan on spending up to two hours for the visit.
|Children||Age 16 and under||$4.00|
|Chaperones and Teachers *||$4.00|
Note: We offer a discounted rate for adults in school trips compared to traditional with the requirement that there is one chaperone or teacher for six students. This teacher-student ratio is for your safety while visiting the Museum.
The bus driver and a teacher receive complimentary admission. Ample space and parking is available for school buses at the Museum.
We require that schools to reserve a date for their field trip so that we may arrange to have our volunteers available to guide your group and give your students an experience they will never forget.
Reservations are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Have a secondary date in mind when calling to make your reservation in case a school trip or other tours are previously booked. You may also call to find out what days are available if you're still in the planning stages.
