Kids playing with artifacts

The University of Colorado Museum of Natural History offers a varied selection of object-based museum programs for schools, clubs, and other groups.

All programs at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History are…

  • Fun, interactive, hands-on, and designed to encourage critical thinking skills and learning from objects.
  • Age-appropriate and developed to address state and local school curriculum standards, when applicable.
  • Interdisciplinary, covering science, language and visual arts, geography, and history.
  • Designed to enhance student understanding of exhibit topics and related concepts.

Museum field trip opportunities include hands-on guided programs, hands-on workshops, and self-guided visits. If you are interested in classroom resources, we also rent outreach material to bring the museum objects into your classroom. Teachers are encouraged to visit our teacher resources page to find upcoming pre- and post-visit materials and links to other resources on the UC-Boulder campus.
