Free Field Trips
The Willard and Pat Walker Charitable Foundation announced in 2011 a $10 million donation establishing an endowment to pay all expenses for school field trips to the Crystal Bridges. Those expenses include everything from gasoline for the buses to lunches for the students. Student group tours take place between 9 and 11 each morning, before the museum opens to the public. The longest round-trip any school group has made to Crystal Bridges is 720 miles, said Anne Kraybill, distance learning programs manager at Crystal Bridges.
