NOTE:  The AFHM will soon be STEM certified.

Compliment your curriculum and enhance your student’s learning experience by bringing your students on an approved Pinellas County Field Trip at the Armed Forces History Museum.  A comprehensive learning experience has been developed by AFHM with the support of the Pinellas County Schools Social Studies Department.

Angie H from St. Petersburg, FL writes – Attended with a field trip and the children loved it.  Our guide was great and loved how he kept the children’s attention!

 

While at the museum, students will participate in a multi-media educational experience, including descriptive displays, photographs, videos and lifelike dioramas.  Curriculum Field Trip 1 WScovered includes - but is not limited to – history, geography, art, reading and mathematics.  Authentic military artifacts cover military conflicts from WW1 through the current conflicts in the Middle East.  All field trips include a guided tour, museum scavenger hunt and letters to overseas troops.  Tours are suitable for all ages and take approximately one hour.

    We are a small private school and most of our students are here on the step up program I have been looking into fieldtrips that would be educational and fun for our students and I found you. I would love to bring our middle and high school student for a visit sometime in October but the $8.00 is a little high for our students. Is there any way you can let both the high school and middle school in at the $5.00? Please let me know as soon as possible.

    Thank you,
    Cynthis McKeel
