Steps to Making a Reservation
- Contact Group Sales at 267-579-3623 or firstname.lastname@example.org to check availability for a preferred date and time. You may be asked to complete and submit a reservation or virtual program request form.
- You will receive a confirmation invoice and contract from the Group Sales Department.
- When you receive your invoice and contract, sign and return a copy of the contract to your reservation agent. Reservations are not considered confirmed until a signed contract and deposit, if applicable, are received.
- Deposits are required for in-museum visits. Virtual Learning Programs and In-School Programs do not require a deposit. A purchase order for the full amount may be submitted by the deposit deadline as an alternative to a deposit.
- K-12 Educators can browse our For Students & Educators page to access our pre-visit materials.
Tips for Group Visits
The Museum uses Zoom for our remote learning programs. Please let Group Sales know at the time of booking if your school, district, or organization requires you to use a different platform.
If you are making reservations for multiple programs at your school or organization, the name and email of the person in charge of each session is required.
You will receive an email from your Reservation Agent three weeks prior to your scheduled program date containing a link to use on the date of your program and instructions for login.
Please sign in 15 minutes prior to your scheduled program time to assist us with troubleshooting any technical issues that may arise.
At the time of booking, please share anything you think your educators will need to know, including sign-in, classroom procedures, and any objects prohibited by your school, district, or organization.
If you are making reservations for multiple teachers at your school or in your grade, Group Sales will require the name of the teacher in charge of each classroom the educator will be visiting.
You will receive an email from your Reservation Agent three weeks prior to your scheduled program date confirming the dates and times of your programs and finalizing any outstanding details.
Reservations must be made in advance. Late April, May, and early June are the most popular time for school bookings. We recommend making your reservation for these months as far in advance as possible.
Student Groups Only: Lunch space is available for Spring only on a first come, first served basis and must be reserved in advance. We charge a $20 non-refundable fee to reserve the space. Adult Groups, please contact Group Sales at 267-579-3623 to learn about in-museum dining options.
