Field Trips to WonderLab

Bring your class to WonderLab and experience the joy of hands-on science and learning through play. WonderLab offers a friendly learning environment with engaging hands-on science exhibits that support current Indiana Academic Standards in Science. WonderLab welcomes school classes of all grades, including adults, and people of all abilities.

The basic Field Trip is a self-directed exploration of the exhibit galleries facilitated by museum staff and volunteers. Lunchroom facilities are free but only available by reservation.

What counts as a Field Trip?

  • A Field Trip is defined as a minimum of ten paid individuals with one free adult chaperone.

  • Reservations must be confirmed at least two weeks prior to the visit.

  • Field Trips may be scheduled with an arrival time as early as 9:00am.

Field Trip Pro Tips

  • We recommend approximately 90 minutes for your group to explore the museum.

  • If you want to add demonstrations, science labs or lunch you should plan to add additional time.

  • Plan to visit the Gift Store.

  • Your visit coordinator will provide you with an itinerary based on the activities selected.
