Educational School Tours

There is no doubt that children (and adults) love to play. And there is no doubt that teachers want their students to learn. At Dakota Discovery, the best of both worlds can be paired together in a fantastic field trip.

The Dakota Discovery Museum environment can fulfill a very important role in a students learning experience. We believe children learn best when they have fun, are self-motivated, and search for answers to questions they formulate for themselves. We have created a welcoming place that fosters exploration, communication, and social interaction.
