About the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History

The Fort Worth Museum of Science and History welcomes approximately 600,000 ticketed guests every year including roughly 260,000 school-aged children. With school and community outreach, professional development and electronic visits via the Museum website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, the Museum reaches more than double that number of individuals each year. These in-person and virtual visits demonstrate the community's interest in our interpretive programs, our unique learning environments and our value as a Fort Worth educational and cultural resource. Since the Museum opened its current facility in 2009, it has strategically expanded hands-on, participatory offerings for Pre-K through grade 12 and multi-generational experiential learning embracing history and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects. As the leader in informal education and a key pillar of the Cultural District, the Museum is the only one of its kind in Fort Worth dedicated to providing students with inquiry-based learning experiences that stem from our rich science, history and humanities collections. The Museum provides a quality array of exhibits, programming for all ages and educational films. Additionally, the Museum's outreach programs create a multitude of partnerships with schools and community groups.

The Museum's Needs

One of the Museum's primary goals is to embrace and engage our growing, diverse community by improving access to the Museum, our collections and our programs. With discounts up to 70% off general admission pricing, our Field Trip Program allows students who might otherwise not be able to visit the Museum to explore the wonder of discovery inside our doors. Our Field Trip Program is a core strategy used to engage the large North Texas community with our extraordinary learning environments. Through the Museum's Field Trip Program, students interact with our permanent and traveling exhibitions, explore the night sky in the Noble Planetarium and take an immersive adventure with IMAX films like Superpower Dogs and Apollo 11: First Steps Edition in the Omni Theater. Accommodating large school groups requires additional staffing including field trip ushers, Innovation Studios team members and even building services team members. That's where you come in. We rely on targeted gifts from funders to help underwrite these costs so that we can continue to offer school groups a reduced admission rate while ensuring an exceptional Museum experience.
