Plan a Field Trip

On-site and Electronic Field Trips


Reserve Your Trip


A visit to the National WWI Museum and Memorial is an exciting way to make the Great War meaningful and relevant to learners of all ages! To plan a field trip for your K-12 students, choose your tour type below.

Please note: For the safety of our learning community, guided tours are not currently being scheduled. Self-led tours are available and require a reservation. For the 2021-2022 school year, our Liberty Bond Program in partnership with the Money Museum at the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City is suspended.

Tell me more about On-site Field Trips:

Tour the Museum, either with a Museum guide or on a self-guided tour, for $5 per student. ($7 per student with the Liberty Memorial Tower included.) These discounted rates apply only for groups of 7 students or more. Grant funding assistance may be available for your group.

Due to a high volume of tours, time at the Museum is generally limited to 2 hours. Scout troops, universities and adult groups do not qualify for field trips and should inquire about a Group Tour.


What are Electronic Field Trips?

Ideal for groups of 15 or more participants, these Zoom meetings allow Museum and Memorial educators to provide a live 45-minute digital lesson with time built-in for a student Q&A session. Educators will present on specific WWI topics that emphasize objects, photographs and documents from the Museum and Memorial’s collection. View a schedule of upcoming dates and topics.


You must review the FAQ and the Field Trip Code of Conduct before your visit. Reservations at least two weeks in advance are required on all field trips.
