Museum Field Trips

Take a field trip to the Foxfire Museum! Foxfire offers a variety of virtual and in-person learning opportunities for K-12 students. Go beyond the glass case and hike through Appalachian history during a tour of our outdoor museum, or stream a live chat with a curator right to your classroom! Our programs meet Georgia state standards in all disciplines.

Foxfire is currently not scheduling any field trips or guided tours for 2020 due to COVID-19. We are currently developing digital materials for classroom or at-home learning. If you are interested in learning more, please email asstcurator@foxfire.org  for more information. Please note, the museum is still open for self-guided tours, and we welcome groups up to 10 people.

COVID shouldn’t interrupt your students’ learning! Explore our virtual learning activities for your students.
