Our field trips bring history books to life and allow students to experience hands-on history - just as science labs allow students to practice what they learn. Tour one of our historic house museums, stroll through Columbia's neighborhoods on a guided walking tour or let our trained tour guide hop on your bus to explore historic sites across the Midlands. All school tours align with South Carolina academic standards.
