Field Trips

When planning a field trip to Andersonville, please consider the following:

  • Ranger-led field trips are offered on most Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during the school year. To see if your desired visit date is available, use our online calendar and search your date.
  • Groups visiting on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays should plan to self-guide. Also on any day that you have limited time, or a group that exceeds tour limits then you will want to plan for a self-guided visit.

Please read our 2017-2018 Field Trip Planner for more information on program offerings and details for planning a field trip to Andersonville.
