What is an Outreach program?

Outreach programs are where museum educators will travel to your location to offer a presentation of your choosing. From libraries to senior centers, summer camps to family festivals, and more, our programs are adaptable to any age level, flexible in scheduling, affordable, and FUN!

What kinds of presentations do you offer?

We offer dozens of different presentations across a wide range. Popular topics include bugs and wildlife, fossils, chemistry, history and archaeology, and astronomy. We can tailor presentations to suit K-12 students or adults.

How can I browse presentations that would interest me without needing to go through all of them?

All of our presentations are grouped into seven categories: Earth Science on Wheels, Bugs on Wheels, Wildlife on Wheels, Science on Stage (chemistry, energy, and physics-focused), Science Start (K-2), Docents to Go, and the Discovery Dome (planetarium shows). 

How can I book an Outreach program?

To book a field trip, please submit the Outreach Booking Form at hmns.org/bookoutreach. A Reservations coordinator will be in touch within 3-5 business days to begin planning your program. Your Outreach is not confirmed until you receive an invoice and confirmation from the Reservations department.

How far in advance should I book an Outreach program?

We require at least 4-6 weeks’ notice before your desired date. However, we recommend requesting your preferred program and date as soon as possible for the best availability.
