Chumash Indian Museum field trip

Field trip to Chumash Indian Museum
Experience the rich history of the Chumash at the Chumash Indian Museum. Located on the site of a former Chumash village, the Museum features an abundance of artifacts found locally, such as tools, games, and instruments. The 5,000+ square foot facility also houses a reconstructed Chumash canoe and many items on loan from the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History's Chumash wing.

The Museum offers a renowned school program, starting with a tour of the many exhibits. The students will then partake in a nature walk to the nearby replica of a Chumash village site. They'll learn how the Chumash used and managed the resources in the area, and how they were influenced by their natural region and available resources. Activities at the site include Chumash storytelling, craft-making, and authentic games. Students will enjoy their lunches out in nature at the picnic table area, and visit the gift shop for a reminder of their tour.

All tour learning materials follow California state standards, and the field trip packet includes suggested lessons and learning material to further encourage learning.

The school tour does require a minimum of 40 students to book a tour, and a maximum of 70 students. 1 adult chaperone per 10 students is needed as well. Visit the website to check available dates, submit an application, and book a tour!
