Field Trip Policies
Discount coupons are not valid for school groups, but you can use Science Museum memberships.
You must reserve lunch space when you reserve your field trip, whether you are bringing your own lunches or eating at the museum's restaurants. If you don't, there may not be a place for your group to sit.
Review the Admission Prices for further details.
Final Count and Cancellations
The Science Museum requires 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. Without the minimum number of one chaperone per 10 students, all teachers and chaperones will be charged for admission. Download and/or print out the Chaperone Guide to review before coming to the museum.
A few rules to assure a safe and fun trip for everyone (including teachers and chaperones). Review with students 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.
