Field Trip Ideas for Beaumont & East Texas
Spindletop Gladys City Boomtown Museum
One top resource in The Golden Triangle Spindletop Gladys City Boomtown Museum.
The recreation of historic Beaumont at the time of the Lucas Gusher, part of the Lamar University Beaumont Campus, recreates the feel of what the regions was like during the original Spindletop oil boom. They have lots of historic buildings, a historic printing press, and a cool re-enactment of the original gusher that announced the beginning of the oil boom.
For student tours, including public and private schools, home school groups, and scout troops, during the regular school year (September-May), admission is free for all youth and one chaperone for every ten students. Additional chaperones pay the regular adult tour admission fee of $3. Admission for youth tours during the summer (June-August) is $1 per person, including youth and adults. Due to the nature of our events, regular admission prices will apply to event days.
Gladys City can accommodate up to 150 children in one tour. It is requested that large groups have at least one chaperone for every ten children.
