The Leonardo’s Permanent Exhibits

During a field trip, groups explore the Leo’s exhibits and installations at their own pace. Students interact with cutting-edge exhibits that encourage them to examine the role of science, art, and technology in their lives. Teachers are encouraged to use the provided field trip guides to relate the experience to what they are teaching in their classrooms. Exploring all of the Leo’s exhibits typically takes about two hours.

The Leonardo’s permanent exhibits are FREE to all Utah public and charter schools.  Please indicate within the online form if your school is a part of the public or charter school system.


Field Trip Workshops

A standard field trip experience includes one workshop for your students (usually at the start of the field trip). Workshops are not offered in June, July, or August.
