Field Trips

Please Note: All K-12 programming is held virtually at this time. Please check back in Spring 2023 for any updates regarding this policy. The safety of our staff and students continues to be our highest priority.


Field trips create opportunities for students to work directly with primary sources.  We offer a wide range of programs for grades 4 though 12.  Read more below about previous programs focusing on Yellow Fever, Civil War, Abolition, Immigration, and Political Cartoons.  Please review our policies and procedures below for arranging field trips.  When you are ready to book a trip, submit your request through the Field Trip form.

Policies and Procedures

  • Please submit your request form at least 4 weeks in advance of the earliest date requested.
  • For 2022-23, virtual field trips will be available Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays between anytime between 9 AM to 10:30 AM, and on Wednesday from 9:30 AM to 12 PM. 

The Historical Society of Pennsylvania will try to accommodate all requests for exceptions to these policies, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate you due to limited staff time to prepare for visits.
