Tour Information

  • One adult must accompany every 10 students.
  • Plan to arrive 15 minutes before your program; a late arrival may result in a shortened or cancelled program.
  • Guided programs are led by museum-trained docents and feature hands-on experiences.

Important Information For Your Group Tour

Staff or trained docents will conduct guided programs, but while at the Museum, adult sponsors accompanying student groups are responsible for student behavior.  A program or tour may be terminated if participant behavior is deemed unmanageable by Museum staff. To assure a safe, comfortable learning experience, adult sponsors must closely monitor and control student behavior.

Bus Parking

Buses may enter Museum parking lot from Fourth Street and drop off students at the north main entrance.  Buses must park on the north side of the north parking lot.
