Shopping

The Museum has a wonderful store with great gift ideas and children’s section. If your group plans to shop, please allow 20 minutes and chaperone them in small groups.

Chaperones

The Museum recommends 1 chaperone per 5 pre K-2nd and 1 chaperone for every 10 students above 3rd grade. This is to ensure safety and accessibility to small exhibits.

Confirmation

You will receive a confirmation by mail stating the approximate cost and schedule for your planned visit. Please review this carefully and contact the Museum to make any necessary changes before arrival.

Arrival

Please plan on arriving at least 15 minutes prior to your tour. This will give you time to check-in, organize your groups/chaperones and allow for a restroom break.
