Field Trips for K-12

Each year 5,000 to 8,000 school children visit the National Ranching Heritage Center. The NRHC can accommodate groups of various sizes. Self-guided tours of the museum and the 19-acre historical park take from 60 to 90 minutes depending on the age and interest of the group. All tours are self-guided by the teacher or chaperone and require a site tour reservation.

Paved pathways around the historical park provide wheelchair access to the 49 historical structures. Signs are posted to give a history of each structure in both English and Spanish. A picnic area may be reserved for a fee depending on availability.

There must be one adult chaperone for every 10 minors in the group. Chaperones must stay with the group while students tour the historical park, view indoor exhibits and visit the gift shop. Chaperones are responsible for ensuring the safety and managing the behavior of minors in their group.
