About School Field Trips


  • $3 per student

Each year we host thousands of students on "This Is The Place to Experience History" field trips. We offer a 2.5 hour "hands on" total environment learning laboratory that is both fun and educational. Every student will be able to ride our Replica of the Promontory Summit trains and eat their sack lunch on the Bowery. We match the students' field trip experience to the grade level curriculum, allowing them to return for a new experience each year. We accommodate preschool through 7th grade classes.

The students might become a pioneer school class, do chores, visit the shaving parlor, watch the blacksmith, or pull a handcart. They actually experience pioneer life and compare it to modern times.

As one student explained after their school field trip, "That was the coolest park I've ever seen in my life. I love the park!"

Admission is $3 per student. Your registration allows one teacher per class to come for free. Additional chaperones will be charged a $3 admission fee per person.
