Field trips to the Dunn Museum in Libertyville provide school and scout groups interactive programs that encourage group work and critical thinking. School field trips are available for ages 4–grade 8. If your classroom can’t make the trip to the Dunn Museum, our education staff can come to your school. Our in-school programs and educators are packed and ready to travel. School field trips and in-school programs are designed to address Illinois Learning Standards and can be customized to fit your needs. Email or call Nicole Stocker at 847-968-3422 to book a school field trip or in-school program. 

Our staff will offer scout programs on select days throughout the year. Check the website calendar or Horizons for scout program opportunities.
