We have attended this field trip a number of times according to what we are studying at the time. There is information on the Native Americans, Columbus, Explorers, as well as all the science and coastal history. My daughter is now 6 1/2 and loves to go to the museum. They have added a childrens area that is a hands on play space that they all love-even my toddler!
The ship tour is friendly and informative and a great addition to studies of Columbus-where else can you give that kind of study reinforcement? You can bring a lunch and eat out back by the Water Garden and/or enjoy the Xeriscape garden in the front. It is a wonderful field trip and we highly recommend it. If you call ahead and let them know you are a homeschooler, you do not have to pay admission. This can save you quite a bit of money. Enjoy!

My husband and I took the children here: ages 9, 7, and 5. They loved the educational play area! The artifacts were wonderful and part the building itself is built like a ship. My oldest daughter really enjoyed the Queens dress with all of the jewels sewed on it, while my younger daughter was intrigued by the paintings. Sons best part was the replica of Christopher Columbus's ships. Only two of the ships are at the museum (the other is on the beach) and one was down for repair, but the one we got to go on, he really enjoyed. Plus, around the ship is items that the kids can play with and enjoy, so it was hands on. Best part is, you can get into the museum two days for the price of one. Just bring in your reciept.
