School groups can visit the Monon Depot Museum for field trips. Students are broken up into groups of approximately 35. The groups alternate between a talk about Carmel history and hands-on activities in the Monon Depot Museum, and a walk down the Monon to envision the area as a once-bustling railroad corridor and through Old Town, where they will compare the structures standing today to photographs of those that once populated the town. CCHS volunteers guide students and chaperones through Old To
School visits to the Monon Depot Museum meet curriculum requirements in social studies, math, language arts, and science. Cost of school tours is $3 per child and includes a pre- or post-tour visit to the school by one of our volunteers, who will bring hands-on components to the classroom to reinforce material presented during the visit. Adults/chaperones are free.
