  • Field Trips

    We understand that you would love to have your students explore history at Heritage Square, but our budget and staffing has yet to return to pre-COVID levels, so we are unable to restart our field trip program at this time. Our educational  Traveling Trunks (find more information about them here) will be available again this summer. Please contact us at info@heritagesquarephx.org to ask about booking a trunk. Check out our History at Home page for a bundle of activities, recipes, and staff recommendations.  Our blog is also chock-full of fascinating history – give it a read! Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you at the Square again soon!

    Join us for a journey back in time with your students and learn how people lived in early Phoenix. Our field trips and traveling trunk promote learning, innovation, and imagination. History and culture come to life through engagement with artifacts, analysis of primary sources, and experience with hands-on activities. Travel to us for a field trip or check out a trunk so the field trip can come to you.
