Have an Educational School Trip

New York is one of the world’s most exciting and vibrant cities and could be the perfect place for your students to learn more about politics, immigration or world affairs.

This colourful destination could provide plenty of educational opportunities for your students and you may find that a school tour operator can help you maximise your limited time in the Big Apple.

Of course, you will want to make sure you visit some of New York’s finest museums and attractions on your school trip – you will find plenty to choose from in this cosmopolitan and cultural city.

One place that could be well worth a visit is the Ellis Island Immigrant Museum, which showcases the story of the more than 17 million migrants who passed through here as they prepared to build a new life for themselves in America.

For more information on migrant life in New York, your next stop could be the Lower East Side Tenement Museum. This facility is situated in one of America’s most famous immigrant areas and offers a fascinating perspective into the lives of new arrivals to the United States.

New York is also an influential world centre and your group may wish to pay a visit to the spectacular United Nations headquarters, which is based here. The complex is set on 18 acres of land and is visited by more than one million people each year.

To help your students learn more about the workings of this important international organisation, you may be able to book a one-hour guided tour of the facility – depending on the time of year you plan your visit.

Beyond museums, you’ll find New York has plenty to offer in terms of leisure. Your students could mix and mingle with the locals in the world-famous 843-acre Central Park, take to the Hudson River for a scenic cruise to see some of the city’s most iconic landmarks or spend the night on Broadway taking in a world-class theatre performance.
