Each October the Museum of the Southwest tours every fourth grader in the Midland Independent School District (approximately 1,600 students), free of charge. Students visit all four parts of the Museum campus: the Turner Memorial Art Gallery, Durham Children's Museum, Blakemore Planetarium and the Sculpture Garden. This link provides teacher resources for this visit.
We have finished another successful year of fourth grade field trips! Check back next September for 2016 field trip information.
The 2015 Fourth Grade Tours were made possible by Suzanne Clevenger Martin
