View/Change Appointment: Thank you for your interesting in bringing your students to the Greensboro History Museum. Please read over the Guidelines carefully. Adherence to these will ensure a successful visit and future ability to reserve Field Trips at the museum. Cancellation For the benefit of our volunteers, we require at least 24 hours notice to cancel Field Trips. To cancel a Field Trip, please use the “Cancel” link in your confirmation e-mail. Prior to Arrival. Prior to arriving, organize your students into six similar-sized groups. Provide students with name tags before they arrive.Bring at least six teacher/adult chaperones during your Field Trip (Due to space, please limit the maximum number of chaperones to twelve. This is subject to change for students with disabilities). All chaperones must be at least 18 years of age. The museum reserves the right to alter or cancel scheduled programs in the event of low teacher/chaperone turnout.Prepare students for their visit by emphasizing appropriate behavior and introducing applicable curriculum.If busing to the museum, organize students on the bus by groups to allow for easier entrance after arrival.For school groups that will not have time to visit the Museum Shop after their program, $3 and $5 goody bags are available. If you would like to arrange this, please let us know at least five business days before your visit how many goody bags you would like to order. Checks are payable to the “Greensboro History Museum Shop” on the day of your visit. Arrival If your group is running more than 15 minutes late, please call 336-373-4321 to notify staff of your situation. We reserve the right to cancel programs for groups arriving more than 30 minutes late without notice.Please arrive at the main entrance on East Lindsay Street 10 minutes before your scheduled visit to facilitate your entrance into the museum.Depending on availability, up to two buses may park in front of the Museum. Vehicles must not park in the fire lane. Smaller vehicles may park in the Museum’s free public parking behind the building and across East Lindsay Street.Teachers/chaperones should lead students off the bus in their groups, and arrange groups into distinct lines on the museum’s front plaza. In case of inclement weather, groups can be lined up inside the lobby instead. Students will be led into the auditorium and seated in their groups by row.The museum cannot provide space for visitors to eat inside. Groups may eat in Richardson Park (behind the museum), Lebauer Park, Festival Park, Center City Park, Fisher Park (for groups of 20 or less), or on their bus during cold/inclement weather. During Your Visit Field Trips at the museum are made possible by volunteers. An unexpected shortage of volunteers on the day of your visit requires Field Trips to be altered, or turned into a self-guided visit. If at anytime, including the day of the Field Trip, we become aware that the visit will be affected by a shortage of volunteers, education staff will inform and help adjust the group’s visit.Teachers/chaperones are expected to escort students throughout the museum at all times, keep their groups together and on task. The downstairs restrooms accommodate a maximum of four male and four female students at one time. Chaperones are responsible for their students’ behavior in the restrooms. The museum reserves the right to amend or cancel programs in case of student misbehavior.At the end of the program, student groups will return to the auditorium to wait for the entire group to gather before leaving. During this time, students may visit the Museum Shop. Due to space constraints and safety, students must remain with their chaperone and assigned group while visiting the museum shop and exiting the Museum. After Your Visit We encourage teachers to organize post-visit activities to allow students to compare and contrast their museum experiences, thus deepening the impact of their engagement with the history.Complete the evaluation sent via e-mail. Your feedback is extremely important in helping us to improve our future tours. (created by Acuity Scheduling) AcuityID=1011496352 Google
