Reserving Workshops and Tours

Programs for School Groups

You may also reserve tour appointments for school groups by phone. We would be happy to advise you about tour topics, workshops, and other programs.

Important Notes

So the tour can start on time, you should arrive at the museum with your group 30 minutes before the program starts. Please be sure to take this extra half hour into account in your scheduling.

Because most school groups prefer a time in the morning, please also specify an alternative date and time, ideally at the middle of the day, in the afternoon, or early evening (up to two hours before closing time). The farther in advance you plan, the more likely it is that we can accommodate your desired date and time. We recommend booking 4-6 weeks before the date.
