The History Museum on the Square's Time Travelers Education Initiative provides field trips, traveling exploration trunks, and special programs to students of all ages.

The History Museum on the Square welcomes school, homeschool, and youth groups for interactive and educational field trip experiences. On a field trip, self-guided visits through the museum allow groups to move at their own pace through the different exhibits in the museum. The museum is designed for visitors of all ages to engage with and learn Springfield’s history. With interactive exhibits, artifacts, games, and technology, students dig deeper into history and make connections with the past. Scavenger hunts and I-Spy hand-outs are available upon request to focus students as they explore the exhibits.

School and Youth Field Trip rates are available for groups of 10 or more paying children and chaperones. A minimum of two weeks’ notice is appreciated. To request a field trip, fill out the field trip reservation form. We will contact you within three business days to follow up on or confirm your reservation. For inquiries about reservations, call 417-831-1976 or email
