Old Florida Museum has been offering field trips for over 25 years.
We offers five unique “HANDS-ON” programs designed to be entertaining as well as educational. Students experience life in Florida through the struggles and successes of its people during distinct time periods of Florida’s history. All programs follow the Sunshine State Standards.
Each program runs for 45 to 55 minutes. Groups may choose to do 1, 2 or all the programs. The program areas fit up to 30 participants comfortably. Multiple classes can be accommodated in the facility at one time.
OUTLINE OF THE PROGRAMS
A guide greets the group upon arrival and gives an orientation prior to entering. The costumed guide shares an interactive history of the time period. Students make a project that they will take home. Students then have free time to participate in a variety of activity stations.
For over 20 years Old Florida Museum (OFM) has been catering to the dedicated Home Schoolers. Click here for more information on Home School Days.
