Choose Your Field Trip Experience
All GCM Field Trips provide students with powerful Museum Play in over 35,000 square feet of interactive exhibits. Extend your Field Trip experience by adding on a design-oriented Think Studio or one-of-a-kind SMALLab to enrich your curriculum. Grade level specific experiences, details, and pricing are outlined in the Educator Playbook.
GCM reserves Monday Field Trips exclusively for groups with special needs. Mission Monday Field Trips can be customized to address the specific needs of an individual group. Instead of booking online, please call our Field Trip Supervisor at 813 443 3830 to book your Mission Monday experience.

Add On a SMALLab
For Grades 1-4
GCM is the first children’s museum to house SMALLab, an embodied learning environment where every learner is up, moving, and collaborating with peers. Team up with a GCM Educator to bring your classroom lessons to life in this unique, Motion-Capture Studio. Research shows that SMALLab experiences increase learning by 86% and peer collaboration is 6.7 times higher than in a traditional classroom setting.
