Our Education Programs: Bee Family Centennial Farm Museum brings history to life in Northern Colorado.
We would like to offer a field trip opportunity for your students that will fit both State and National Standards in all curriculum areas.
You will start your tour of the farm with an introduction DVD followed by a guided tour in and around existing farm buildings. Your tour includes a homestead house dating to 1894, a milk barn, farm implements and numerous displays depicting pioneer farming around the turn of the 20th century. A scavenger hunt is available for children to complete on their tour around the farm.
Suggested school group size is 10 students/2 adults. Larger groups will be divided to meet this requirement. Cost will be $3/student, 2 adults/10 students will be free, additional adults $7 each. The admission to the farm is $7 for adults, $3 for children (12 years or under) and $5 for seniors.
