Ideal for 3rd grade through college classes, fieldtrip tours are
designed to align with California State Board of Education’s
Content Standards through interactive history and social studies
lessons over the course of 1½ to 2 hours.
Beginning in the lobby, the class is welcomed by a Museum Guide,
who gives the group an orientation, an overview of Constitutional Wall and assistance with
completing Activity Sheets on the remainder of the group’s visit.
Students: $3.00 each
Chaperones: $3.00 each (1 adult for every 10
students is required)
Bring your youth group to The California Museum for a fun and
informational self-guided tour or schedule an interactive program
lead by a Museum Guide.
Poppies, Butterflies and Bears! Oh My!
This is an engaging and interactive program to guide kids through
the Museum as they “hunt” for poppies, butterflies, and bears –
California’s state symbols. Through craft projects and hands-on
activities kids will discover how symbols are used in everyday
life as well as be able to identify the Golden State’s symbols.
Please allow 2 hours.

The California Museum Girl Scout Badge Programs
The California Museum offers Girl Scout badge programs for troop
members of all ages to complete. They are an interesting
and engaging way to learn and have fun! Currently we have three
badge programs – Folk Arts, My Heritage and Back to the Past –
that meet Girl Scout badge requirements. We provide all of
the materials – activity books and crafts supplies – except the
badge, which you will need to purchase on your own from Girl
Scouts. The cost is $7/girl and $5/adult and includes
Museum admission. We require a minimum of 30 girls for each
program and they can be scheduled whenever is convenient for
you. Please allow three hours to complete the
program. Free weekend parking is available.
