Visit the St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station with your school and learn all about the amazing aquatic creatures in a fun and engaging way outside the classroom. We will be offering discounted admissions for school groups to visit the aquarium. Field Trip reservations will be available closer to opening. We encourage you to sign up for our newsletter to receive the latest information.
All our field trip packages will include one free adult chaperone per 10 students.
Field trips will be self-guided and based on availability; we recommend booking at least three weeks in advanced.
The above packages and rates will only be valid for schools groups visiting Monday to Friday.
Outside food and beverages will not be allowed inside the aquarium or within Union Station, therefore school lunches will need to be consumed outside only (within the train park).
We will not have space available for backpack and/or food storage and encourage these items to be left on buses or in vehicles.
There will be several restaurants within Union Station where we can accommodate lunch rates.
Reservations will become available closer to opening. Sign up for our newsletter to receive the latest information.
