Fun Field Trips That are Close to Home

It’s time for Elementary and Middle Schools to start planning spring field trips.  Taking students on a field trip to a local museum is so important! The fun, hands on learning connects them with their local history in a way that is not possible in the classroom, and for many students, it will be an experience they remember all their lives.

A great place to connect students with their local history is at the Time and the Valleys Museum.

The Museum provides two exciting interactive field trip programs which immerse students in the importance of water to all life, and the history of how water has changed both the environment and our culture over thousands of years. Guided by trained Museum educators, students get to handle million year old fossils and Native American artifacts, build tunnels, participate in water demonstrations, and visit the interactive exhibit on NYC’s water supply system among other engaging activities.  Each of the 2 ½ hour programs provide in-depth information in a fun and exciting way to help stimulate student’s learning.  Comprehensive pre-visit information packets and fun activity sheets are also included.

  • Programs are available year round from Tuesday through Friday
  • Curriculums cover grades 2 – 12.
  • Class sizes must have a minimum of 15 students and a maximum of 100 students.
  • The cost is $5 per student, ($4 for Sullivan County Schools) and no charge for teachers and chaperones.


A grant to help pay for class field trip bus transportation is available!
