Field Trips

Field Trips

Youth groups are welcome at Gari Melchers Home & Studio!  The museum offers unique experiences for all kinds of groups and ages.  Art clubs, gifted programs, classrooms, home schoolers, and summer camps are encouraged to consider spending a morning or afternoon of learning, creativity, and fun at Belmont.

Our staff-facilitated programs are customized by Education and Communications Manager Michelle Crow-Dolby to fit your needs and goals. Field trips typically consist of a tactile/inquiry-led House tour, an interactive Studio tour, and an outdoor scavenger hunt.  Most groups also choose to include an art activity (see below).  For booking information, please contact her at mdolby@umw.edu or 540-654-1851.

The museum offers outdoor picnic tables, room to roam, a beautiful view of the Rappahannock River, hiking trails, ample restrooms, and a large parking lot.

Field trip prices are $5 per student or $10 per student if you add an optional art activity.
