The Barrier Islands Center is a fun and educational destination for students of all ages, with engaging and immersive galleries as well as opportunities for students to view and discuss any of the BIC films documenting aspects of life on and around the barrier islands. Our new Fun in the Attic galleries add even more student-friendly exhibits to the experience. A field trip to the BIC is a great way for students to appreciate their own local history.

Eastern Shore pre-school and Kindergarten classes should speak to Education Director Sally Dickinson about joining the My First Field Trip program.
