Small School & Home School Tours

Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals is excited to offer a new program to expand access to our educational tours for those participating in smaller educational programs.
You can now purchase tickets to participate in one of our small school tours! These tours will hit all of the same Next Generation Science Standards that our typical school tours fulfill, and be lead by the same enthusiastic group of educators. Content covered is appropriate for grades 1-6. This is an excellent option for students from small private schools, Montessori going-out, and families that home school.
Join us to learn about:
  • The rock cycle
  • How minerals form
  • Volcanoes
  • The scientific beginning of the universe
  • Fossils and ancient life
These tours start at 10:00 AM on available dates and last for approximately 2 hours, and includes access to our museum store and rock pile at the end of the field trip.

Adults (18+): $8
