Public & Private School Tours

How It Works

The Interurban Railway Museum is a perfect field trip for young minds learning about local history, transportation, economics, electricity, and social issues. We have trained docents and staff to teach our museum content to TEKS standards in an interactive and fun way.

Regular School Field Trips

We book admission-free school field trips on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays for a maximum of 120 kids per day. This is typically scheduled by grade level. We're trained to teach TEKS-guided materials for grades 3, 4, and 5, but we're also able to generally teach all elementary and middle school grades. 

Plano ISD Title I School Field Trip Program

Our Title I elementary school field trip program has taught over 3,500 students from Plano in the past two years. Title I designation means that 50% or more children from that specific elementary school qualify for free lunch. Read more about Title I schools and how they qualify here

With private funding from the Plano Conservancy for Historic Preservation, we pay transportation costs through Plano ISD Transportation Services to bring Plano ISD Title I elementary school groups to the Interurban Railway Museum for a free field trip.
