Spring reservations are now available for virtual field trips, allowing students to explore the Memorial & Museum from anywhere in the world. Tours are led by Education staff via Zoom and are conducive for all learning environments, whether in the classroom, blended, or remote. These interactive tours offer the opportunity for participants to ask questions and make observations in real time.
The Virtual Field Trips page has all the information to book a trip, including schedule, pricing, and available accommodations. We are extremely excited to announce that, thanks to public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, virtual field trips are FREE for New York City schools for the spring semester. Proof of eligibility will be determined by school zip code and confirmed by Museum staff.
