Students and educators are welcome here at Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses. We have a wealth of information to share about our community’s heritage, making our museums ideal destinations for school field trips.

Suited for a Range of Ages

We can accommodate a variety of group sizes and ages, from primary grades through college. The Hermann-Grima House has a group capacity of 60 people, while the Gallier House can hold a group of 45. Each house offers an authentic glimpse of New Orleans from a bygone era. All students visiting on a school field trip will take away a greater understanding and appreciation of our region’s cultural diversity.

Customize Your Experience

Our enthusiastic staff members work with educators to customize school group visits to our museums. We work with teachers to coordinate a memorable experience that resonates with students’ interests while supplementing what they’re learning in the classroom. We can focus on one or more key topics such as the architecture of our historic buildings, for example, or the daily lives of different members of the community who lived and worked here. Let us know what you’d like us to cover. We’ll be happy to offer suggestions as well.

Teacher Resources Available

We offer valuable teacher resources to help you plan your school field trips and develop accompanying classroom lessons. Before your visit, we encourage teachers to come to the museum free of charge to get acquainted with what’s available. If your students plan to bring sack lunches with them, please let us know. We will try to accommodate a group picnic in our courtyard. Our website addresses questions regarding ADA compliance, parking, chaperones, and other important topics.

Special Rates & Discounts Offered

School group pricing discounts are available. A minimum of ten people is required for group rates to apply. On school field trips, we allow one adult per ten students to participate free of charge. Additional chaperones are welcome at a discounted adult admission price.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions about pricing, discounts, logistics, and subjects we can cover during a field trip. Call us at 504-274-0746 to book your tour today!
