At the Museum

Come to MOHAI for a hands-on experience students will always remember. At the museum, classes have the opportunity to explore exhibits through self-guided activities and uniquely themed inquiry-based programs led by MOHAI educators.

MOHAI’s highly facilitated, hands-on field trip programs use authentic historic materials to promote teamwork, creativity, communication, visual literacy, critical thinking, observation, and problem solving skills. All guided programs support Washington’s educational standards, including Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRs), Common Core, and 21st Century Skills. Guided programs are available for K–Grade 8 students, and self-guided visits are offered for all ages.

MOHAI’s field trip calendar books up quickly—be sure to make a reservation early. Scholarships and bus reimbursement funds are available to schools that qualify.

Reservations are required for all youth students coming to the museum. Field trips must be booked 2 weeks in advance. Cancellation fees apply for field trips cancelled 2 weeks before your visit date.
