Primary and secondary state schools are being offered help with the cost of coach travel to visit Aerospace Bristol.
Primary and secondary state schools within 30 miles of the museum in Patchway can claim a bursary of up to £1000.
The funding is provided by South Gloucestershire Council to help the museum in its mission to welcome more than 11,000 school students in the next year.
Cabinet Councillor Ian Boulton said: “I’m delighted that South Gloucestershire Council is enabling our local school children to visit Aerospace Bristol.
“When the pressure to fund school trips is so difficult for our teachers, this fund provides an opportunity for an exciting, informative and inspirational visit to this world class museum on our own doorstep.”
