MHCC Field Trip

For a $5 per student donation to the Military History Center of the Carolinas (MHCC), the Military History Museum will open its doors to you for a field trip.

Field trip can be paid for at the time of your visit.  Cash or checks preferred. Checks should be made out to MHCC.  A
dult supervision is required. If you have teachers and volunteers who are assisting, we will waive their $5 donation. Field trips rely on MHCC volunteers to help so we prefer to have groups of about 30 participants at a time.  Field trips are usually conducted Monday - Friday (excluding holidays) starting at 10 am and lasting about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Advance reservations required.   MHCC reserves the right to cancel field trips at any time.

On nice weather days, many groups like to go to Runway Park at GMU after their visit. See: for details.  You can reserve the picnic hangar and bring lunch if you want.  Details can be found at

Other groups choose to make a reservation to have lunch in the Runway Cafe's hangar after their field trip.  See: for additional information. To make a reservation, please contact the Runway Cafe at 864-991-8488 or AFTER you have scheduled your field trip.
