  • No food or drinks in the building. If you are planning on eating lunch during your visit, we have picnic tables outside on the south side of the building or Cushinberry Park is located across the parking.
  • Arriving late may cause your program to be shortened or canceled.

Reservations for Field Trips to the Park

Transportation Grants

Brown v. Board of Education NHP does not provide transportation, but we can provide funding to schools who visit the park. Funding is available for Title 1 schools, Topeka Public Schools, and schools with other financial needs. If approved, the park will reimburse the school for its transportation costs. We cannot provide funding prior to the visit. Additionally, the school or the transportation provider must accept credit card payments. Reimbursements from Brown v. Board of Education NHS are provided by credit card payment. We will need an invoice of the actual transportation cost prior to providing the reimbursement. You may find the application here (docx 34KB).
