Plan a Field Trip

The Dearborn Historical Museum offers our Pioneer Program field trip opportunity to second grade students between the months of March and June each year. The Pioneer Program focuses on early settlers in Wayne County, and includes four interactive stations where they will learn various aspects of area history by listening and talking to historical presenters. Our program matches grade level content expectations for local history, and provides students with hands-on experiences that brings history to life!

The Program takes place at the Dearborn Historical Museum’s McFadden Ross House, located at 915 S Brady Street, Dearborn, MI 48124. Sessions last for two hours, with groups generally arriving by 9:30am and leaving around 11:30am. The cost is $5 per child, and the museum asks that schools groups assign 1 chaperone per 8-10 children.
