Scheduling a Field Trip:
You may reserve a field trip date by calling Mitch Bloomer at 407-628-0555 ×283. A request may also be faxed to 407-628-1079, or sent via email. We will need the following information:
Field trips are available throughout the school year, but high demand during certain periods may make finding an open date difficult. March, April, and May are very popular for field trip bookings. Dates coinciding with special exhibits are also in high demand. If you want to schedule your trip during one of these periods, please try to call as far in advance as possible.
The standard field trip lasts two hours and consists of a museum tour, a question and answer session, and a film presentation. The duration and content of each part are tailored to the goals of that class.
Student tours begin with individual exploration of the exhibits. The length of time dedicated to individual viewing is flexible according to the needs and developmental level of the students. A guided tour then highlights key themes; students are encouraged to ask questions throughout the guided tour program.
This portion of the field trip program is conducted in the Holocaust Center’s Film and Exhibit Hall. Over 500 videotapes are available through our library. Many of these are appropriate in length and content for the field trip experience. If there are any special art or history exhibits in this room, time will be given to view them, as well.
The goal of the Holocaust Center is to make the field trip as meaningful as possible. The program has been designed with maximum flexibility in mind. The number of students you may bring varies from 1 to 160. The duration may be shorter or longer than the standard, and activities besides those already described may be planned. When the field trip is scheduled and confirmed, specific details may be arranged.
If a field trip is not feasable for your group, we may still be able to help!
Most of our educational programs, including survivor testimonies, may be adapted for presentation at school-sites, pending availability of dates and times.
