School Field Trips
Museums are a wonderful way to expand and supplement topics covered in the classroom. Original artifacts are on display as well as primary and secondary source material. A visit to the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History can cover a wide range of topics from military, political, art and social history.
Teachers are encouraged to prepare their students for their visit by discussing relevant topics that students will be exposed to before they visit. Further, teachers are encouraged to use a visit to the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History as a way to expand and extend the classroom experience for their students, continuing to engage students in dialog to help facilitate the learning experience while here. Museum staff will be on-hand to help guide your class through the museum and to answer any questions.
For tours where the class size is more than twenty students, the students will be divided into even sized groups and a museum staff member will accompany each group of students. It is recommended that there should be one chaperone per ten students.
Museum staff are on-hand to guide tours through the museum and discussion of educational topics.
Students should be respectful of other visitors inside the museum.
