For Preschoolers and K-12:

Teachers, make the Museum your classroom for a day!


We make field trips fun and easy, and just what your students need! Our educators are creative and nimble. Give us your educational goals and challenges (and enough time) and we can design a field trip that will meet yourbudget, time constraints, and teaching goals. Fun field trips for Preschools! Students play and learn with hands-on activities, stories and songs. Active preschoolers enjoy activities indoors and outside. All programs are aligned with Virginia’s Foundation Blocks for Early Learning. Our playground, picnic area, and lunchroom are free for your group. 


Virginia Museum of Transportation: the best place in town to learn about the science, history, and art of transportation!

The Museum offers lots of opportunities for lifelong learning!
