Need Help Funding Your Field Trip?

Through the Yellow Bus Fund, we are pleased to help cover the expense of buses for schools that would normally find this cost prohibitive when planning a visit. Due to the overwhelming interest, we can provide a full subsidy for the cost of transportation for New London public schools. The museum will provide a 50% subsidy for the cost of transportation for schools in New London County and 25% subsidy for schools coming from outside New London County. The subsidy is paid for bus trips from your school directly to the museum and back to your school with no additional stops.

*Special reduced admission/tour rates are available for all New London Schools New London public schools may visit the museum unguided for free anytime (this option requires one chaperone for every ten children). Please contact the museum’s education department for special reduced pricing on guided tours and art workshops.
