Give your students a field trip to remember at Knock Knock Children’s Museum! Self-guided field trips are offered to students early childhood – 3rd grade. As the name implies, this option encourages children, along with their teachers and chaperones, to explore the museum at their own pace.
Length of Field Trip
Field trips are scheduled for a 2-hour period. Groups should arrive at least 5 minutes in advance to check-in. Field trips that arrive prior to opening or too far in advance of their scheduled visit will have to wait for entry.
Scheduling Field Trips
Field trips are available for LARGE GROUPS (150 children or more) on Tuesdays from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.
Field trips for SMALL GROUPS (149 children or less) are available on Thursdays and Fridays from 9:30 am – 11:30 am and 10:00 am – 12:00 pm.
$10 per student
$10 per chaperone used to meet the 1:5 ratio
Teachers/paraprofessionals are free!
Knock Knock requires one (1) adult chaperone for every five (5) children. We strongly encourage schools to work within this ratio in order to ensure that students have the best possible field trip experience. Field trips with students with special needs or certain pre-school groups can have a higher chaperone/child ratio with pre-authorization.
The school will be responsible for facilitating the booking of chaperones required to meet the 1:5 ratio. The $10 cost of chaperone attendance should be included in the payment Knock Knock receives from the school.
Any additional adults (besides those used to meet the ratio) that would like to attend the field trip must purchase a general admission ticket online for $14. Purchase additional tickets here.
A final headcount is due 7 days prior to the scheduled date of the field trip.
**NOTE: It is the sole responsibility of the school administration to determine the status of the adults (chaperone or additional adult) accompanying your class/school on your field trip.
Additional parents/chaperones (not included in the 1:5 ratio) who are members will still have to pay $14 for admission to the field trip. Field trips are NOT included in member benefits.
If you cancel your field trip with 7+ days’ notice before the scheduled date, you will receive a 50% refund less the booking fee.
If you cancel your field trip with less than 7 days’ notice, you will not receive a refund of any kind.
Parking is free at Knock Knock. School buses will be directed to park and unload at a designated location and provided with information relative to parking of the bus.
Knock Knock does not have indoor facilities for lunch, even in the case of inclement weather. The museum is located near City Park, where park benches and grassy areas are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
