The Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples is committed to the critical educational work that teachers (and parents!) do daily with students. We provide tangible, highly engaging ways for children to apply what they learn in school and be inspired to learn more.
We offer a variety of educational opportunities including field trips, STEAM workshops, and STEAM night rentals.
Our exhibits and programs are designed by former classroom teachers, disciplinary experts, and exhibit fabricators. Each exhibit is a model of three interrelated principles: an appreciation of children’s play behavior, knowledge of how an environment can influence play and learning and understanding children’s developmental milestones.
CMON staff will greet you, review a few guidelines and logistics, and your group will be free to explore the various CMON exhibits at your own pace until the end of your scheduled visit.
Give your PK-3 through 3rd grade students a field trip to remember. There’s so much for your students to do and discover as you explore our interactive exhibits and experience hands-on STEAM-based learning cleverly disguised as play!
Students are $10, chaperones are $8, and teachers are free. Chaperones in the one to six ratio are also free.

Here at CMON we learn through play! Every exhibit is a hands-on, immersive experience where your students will learn STEAM-based concepts while enhancing their interpersonal skills. During your Museum visit, you will follow a schedule where you have plenty of time for exploration. Teachers may choose to explore the exhibits, including the Traveling Exhibit, participate in projects in the Art Studio, or play outside in the Backyard (weather permitting). The highlight of our field trips is the new maker space exhibit, the Inventioneer’s Lab. Your visit to the Inventioneer’s Lab includes facilitation by one of our Makers.
Field Trips start at 10 a.m. and end at 1 p.m; or 1:30 p.m. if you add a workshop.
We require one chaperone for every six students. We have an 80 student maximum per day.
