Kick off your school year at the Tar Pits!

Enjoy a light breakfast, learn how to book a field trip, and enter to win some Ice Age resources for your classroom.

Do you know your dates and are ready to book a field trip? We have you covered! An educator will walk you through the booking process and help submit your reservation! Join us in a microfossil sorting activity, get up close and personal with fossil casts, chat with a Metro representative about how to travel on the Metro for free to our museum, and check out some resources you can use with your students while on a field trip. End your morning with an Ice Age Encounters performance, or explore the museum at your leisure.

Parking in the museum's parking lot is free before 9 am.
