- About Us
We require at least one chaperone for every 10 students. A chaperone is an adult over 21. However, smaller subgroups mean a more meaningful—and safer—experience for our students, so the museum admits up to two chaperones free for every 10 students. Chaperones must stay with their students at all times and are responsible for the conduct of the students they are accompanying.

The Science Museum requires students and chaperones to remain together at all times. Group size should be 5-10 students per one adult.
Field Trip Tips
A few rules to assure a safe and fun trip for everyone (including teachers and chaperones).
In the infrequent event that a student's behavior is disruptive to others, museum staff will ask for additional assistance from teachers and chaperones for the group. In extreme situations, museum staff reserves the right to ask the students to leave the museum.
