  • Description - Burpee Museum of Natural History

    The Education Department of Burpee Museum enjoys a reputation among area educators for providing high quality educational programming.   The education staff and volunteer docents are uniquely qualified to give your students an educational experience in a visually exciting setting.   Our dedicated staff members are professionals with classroom experience.   Tours are structured, designed to meet the needs of your class, and include hands-on experiences and dialogue between the museum educator and students. Burpee Museum is the perfect destination for a focused field trip - not so large as to be intimidating but with enough to satisfy any inquiring mind!   All our tours and workshops are aligned to the Illinois State Goals for Learning. Upon arrival, groups are met by their tour guide, who assists with coats, lunches, bathrooms etc.   Once the tour starts, everyone can relax and enjoy themselves with the tour guide taking the lead. The guide stays with the group throughout their scheduled time and directs the group to the lunch room or the front lobby for departure at the end of the visit.
