Group Visits to the LGM

How to Arrange a Visit

Whether you are a primary or secondary school teacher, homeschool teacher, scout leader, or associated with a community group of any other kind, we encourage you to bring your class or group to the museum to see great examples of geologic specimens of all kinds, including superior examples of our world-renowned local fossils. In addition, we may even be able to organize or assist with a local geology field trip. And, please consider including visits to other campus museums as part of your outing.

*Please note: Although the Limper Geology Museum can best accommodate groups of less than 30 students, larger groups can easily be split into two or more groups that can then rotate between the Limper Museum and one or more of the other campus museums. The Hefner Zoology Museum's subject matter makes it a great choice when students are rotating between only two museums.

What you will be able to do at the Limper Geology Museum

The Limper Museum can provide worksheets for grades 1 and 2, grades 3 and 4, grades 5 and 6, and grades 7 and 8. We would be pleased to send you the appropriate worksheet and "Information for the Teacher" in advance of your visit. If you choose to use the worksheet at the Museum, we can have copies ready for you when you arrive. These worksheets require about 30 minutes to complete. The Museum also has simple museum treasure hunts for grades 1 and 2, grades 3 and 4, grades 5 and 6, and grades 7 and 8. These require about 20 minutes to complete, and we can have them ready for you at the museum if you let us know in advance.
