LCM 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. All adults must be registered with their class. Adults not registered in advance must pay museum general admission cost. Unregistered parents may be turned away due to capacity regulations.
Upon availability, LCM offers a private lunch space for groups at the end of a scheduled field trip if field trip lunches are ordered through Dickie Brennan & Co. The lunch space must be booked in advance and box lunches must be ordered at least 5 days in advance of your field trip. Please indicate on your field trip registration form if you would like to order box lunches.
If your group is bringing your own lunches, space is available on our event lawn for a picnic-style lunch.
Bus drop off is located in front of the museum on Henry Thomas Drive. After drop off busses should park in designated bus parking across from City Park’s Storyland.
We have scheduled and organized your time with us so that you can see much of what we have to offer. Four of our exhibit galleries (Follow That Food, Dig Into Nature, Move With The River and Make Your Mark), as well as an outside visit, will be included in your two-hour field trip. Welcomed and facilitated by museum staff, your class will have a designated amount of time to explore and enjoy each gallery in our Play Building.
Our goal is that you get a good sampling of the fun and learning throughout the Louisiana Children’s Museum and plan to come back soon!
The field trip coordinator will review the submitted request for accuracy, completeness, and availability and notify the school/group with a final confirmation within 7 business days of the request. The final confirmation will include payment due.
