School Groups & Youth Organizations
Free of charge. We'll help you plan an unforgettable field trip to the Whitaker Museum. Trained guides provide lively and instructive tours for students of all ages, from preschool to college. Advance reservation is required.
Each tour meets the Davis County Curriculum Content Standards.
Tours should be arranged at least two weeks in advance. Please inform us about your students’ needs and interests, number of people (students and adults) in your group, as well as your preferred date and time.
The date, time, and content of your field trip are not finalized until you email receive confirmation.
We can accommodate multiple groups, provided we know your numbers in advance. Be prepared to divide into smaller groups of 15 students prior to the start of the tour.
Two adult chaperones are required for every 15 students. Chaperones must remain with the group at all times.
The Whitaker is sustained through the many volunteers who donate their time, resources, and money. Each gift, large or small, carries a message of affection and commitment. Put your talents to work, make new friends, and make a difference!
Volunteer Committee is appointed by the Museum Board, and recognized by the Mayor and Centerville City; this lively group is a mainstay of the Whitaker.
