K-12 School Groups

Students, teachers, and chaperones are welcome to explore ASM’s exhibits, which focus on the rich history and culture of the U.S. Southwest and northern Mexico.

Self-guided exploration of exhibits is available Tuesday–Friday, 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. All visits must be pre-scheduled and require at least one adult chaperone per eight students. Groups larger than 50 may be staggered.

At this time, museum guides are not provided. Teachers are encouraged to visit the museum before bringing their classes on a field trip (free admission for teachers for this purpose is offered with prior arrangement). To make your students’ experience more meaningful, we recommend using discovery hunts and other materials, which are available here.

Cost: K-12 students are free and UA and PCC students are free with their ID card. Teachers and chaperones pay the standard admission fee of $8.00 per adult. This fee will be invoiced to you upon registration. If you do not pre-register, we may not be able to accommodate your group in the museum.

Email us or call 520-621-4523 for more information, to register your class visit, or to inquire about bus funds.
