“Play is our brain’s favorite way of learning.”
– Diane Ackerman, American Author

A group trip to the museum is ideal for boys and girls clubs, mom’s clubs, child care centers, preschools, grade schools, special needs classes or groups, and more!

Teachers and chaperones will enjoy a “hassle free” field trip to the Children’s Museum of Fond du Lac, while students “play to learn.” Our interactive exhibits are designed to support Wisconsin’s Model Academic Standards. Our educational programs enhance concepts taught in your classroom!

To reserve your trip contact the museum, email info@cmfdl.org or call 920-929-0707.

“Even though my students are an older age, the exhibits and hands on activities were invaluable. When they were able to take specific organs and place them into a body, it gave them a more realistic sense of our body parts. Being in the radio booth from Canada was especially beneficial as this year we have pen pals from a school in Canada and have studied Canada.” – Valerie Lenz, CDS teacher at Fond du Lac High School
