Self-Guided Visits

students doing a scavenger hunt

Young explorers travel through the world and through time in their imaginations.

Grades K–12

Explore the Museum's galleries with your student-anthropologists and student-archaeologists. Meet the Maya. Travel the Pacific Islands. Explore the diversity of Native America. Reserve a hands-on Museum Mysteries kit for use in the museum. Plan at least two hours for these adventures, which include museum orientation.  

Teachers are encouraged to visit the museum in advance to plan their students' visit. Enjoy one free admission per AFT or MTA member card or school ID for K-12 teachers working in Massachusetts schools. This offer does not apply to scheduled group visits.
