Field Trip Opportunities for Early Childhood Education
All schools, home schools and licensed daycare providers may take advantage of the City of Greeley Museum’s field trip program and enrich their curriculum with a trip to Centennial Village Museum, located at 1475 A St., and the Greeley History Museum, located at 714 8th St., in Greeley, Colorado.
Centennial Village Museum… where the past comes to life! Some of Weld County’s oldest structures are located on the site of this 8-acre open-air museum, which features costumed interpreters, heritage farm animals, beautifully landscaped grounds and interactive experiences. Centennial Village is an “open-air museum” and field trips occur in both rain or shine so prepare accordingly. Due to high demand and limited space, we ask that you schedule your visit today.
