Schedule a Virtual Field Trip

This school year has taken shape in new and strange ways. We understand that health and safety are a top priority, and with that in mind we are not currently conducting group tours and workshops at the Museum.

Don't worry - the New Jersey State Museum has you covered! From asynchronous, hands-on kits to streaming star shows and live chats with our scientific experts, your favorite experiences are all adapted to your virtual classroom. Use the PDF guide below to choose from a variety of program packages and let us bring the field trip to you!

Choose from 3 different asynchronous kits designed for K-4 or 5-8 students. Each kit is compatible with Google Classroom and include: a link to a pre-recorded gallery tour, set of 25 hands-on crafts and multiple digital activity sheets to expand learning. Kits are $75.00 each and craft supplies are available for free curbside pickup at the Museum or shipped directly for an extra $30.00 fee per box.

Your class may also schedule a live session with one of our Museum experts which includes a presentation followed by interactive Q&A. Our expert will join your virtual classroom, or we can provide a Google Meet or Zoom link at your request. We suggest a maximum of 50 students per live program and will work to accommodate your group; larger groups may wish to split into two sessions. Choose between two Ask the Experts programs in Paleontology or Archaeology for $3 per student, or a Live Night Sky Talk for $2 per student.

Once you have chosen your virtual experience:
Call (609) 292-1382 or email to order.

All kits cost $75. Price includes 25 hands-on projects and links to digital activities and pre-recorded tours. Live Night Sky talks cost $2 per student and includes a 20-minute live presentation and a link to the show "To Space & Back." Ask the Expert Live Science talks cost $3 per student and include a 45-minute session with a presentation and Q&A time. To encourage interactions with our experts during these live talks, there is a suggested maximum of 50 students per live session.

Payment is due when you place your order. We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover and POs. Final payment by credit card is strongly preferred. Credit cards payments will be processed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Digital links will be emailed and materials sent after payment is received. Kit supplies are available for free curbside pickup from the State Museum within 3 business days of your order. Kits can also be shipped for an additional $30 per box (up to 50 projects per box). We do not ship to individual students. Please allow up to two weeks for delivery of shipped items.
