All field trips to Pea Ridge NMP are currently self guided. We offer ranger programs at the Visitor Center as well as volunteer/ranger programs at the Elkhorn Tavern (when available). The ranger programs are given on request, and the Elkhorn Tavern program is typically standard. A typical field trip consists of going through the museum either with a scavenger hunt, seeing a ranger program (on request) and then taking the self-guided 7-mile drive around the battlefield.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the Visitor Center Interpretation staff.
Museum Scavenger Hunts
We currently offer only TWO Ranger programs for school groups. You must request one when scheduling your group.

When Confederate General Van Dorn heard news that Curtis pushed Price out of Missouri, he set out to take personal charge of an attack on Curtis, along with Price and McCulloch. He arrived at Price’s headquarters in an ambulance, braving a severe illness resulting from falling into an icy stream.
