Would you like your students to watch the 30 minute video shown at the Visitors Center?
Would you like your students to have a 30 minute guided tour and discussion of Eisenhower's Boyhood Home?
Would you like your students to spend 30 - 45 minutes exploring current exhibitory about the life and times of Dwight D. Eisenhower? Note: The Eisenhower Museum building is undergoing a complete renovation. During this time, exhibits will be located in the 2nd floor of the Eisenhower Library.
Groups are welcome to visit the final resting place of Ike, Mamie, and their first son on their own, but we do offer an IKEducator for those who would like additional information. This will require 15 - 30 minutes.
Please note the length of time needed and appropriate grade range. For program descriptions, please refer to the IKEducation Educator's Guide. Class groups will be kept to 25 or less.
If you have students from multiple grades or have a second choice in the rare case we cannot fulfill your first choice, please select another Field Trip Enhancement Program.
Picnic tables are located west of the museum for groups with sack lunches. An indoor location will be determined in the case of inclement weather.
