MUSEUM QUEST
Trips to the Museums in May and June have been a tradition for students for many years. During the Spring Field Days time, classes can explore The Farmers’ Museum, Fenimore Art Museum, and our Native American Sites at their own pace. 

Spring Field Days now features Museum Quest, a series of staffed drop-in learning stations at both museums to help students explore our collections through standards-based activities in math, science, social studies, and language arts. All of the learning stations are connected to New York State Learning Standards, including the Common Core Standards in English Language Arts. 

Offered: May, June
Cost: $6 per student (includes admission to The Farmers’ Museum and the Fenimore Art Museum)
New York State Standards: SS, Arts, ELA Common Core, MST
