Tips for Group Visits


Reserve Your Date Early:

Our calendar fills quickly. For best date selection, we recommend booking 2-12 months in advance.

Arrive On Time:

Plan to arrive a few minutes before the Start Time listed on your reesrvation. Groups will be ready to board their buses at the End Time listed on your reservation.

Prepare Your Students:

Help your students know what to expect when they arrive at the museum.

Plan for Lunch:

The museum does not have food service on site. If your group plans to have lunch at the museum, you will need to bring sack lunches and reserve a lunchroom as part of your visit.
