More information to help you plan your trip

  1. How Many Educators Will My Group Receive?
    We will assign one Museum Educator per 20-25 members of your group. For example, if you are bringing a group of 80 students, they will be divided into four groups, and one educator will guide each group through the Museum. We will communicate with your prior to your tour to determine the number of groups needed. Because you know your group members best, it is often helpful if you assign groups prior to arriving at the Museum, being sure to keep group sizes approximately the same.
  2. Tour Confirmation & Payment
    Your tour will be confirmed when we receive your signed contract and a deposit by the due-date listed on the contract. Deposits are non-refundable. Full payment is due prior to or upon your arrival.
  3. Cancellations, Changes, & Late Arrival
    • Cancellations: Please notify us immediately if you need to cancel your group’s scheduled guided tour. If you cancel your tour, any payment you have made will be applied as credit to a future visit or credit in our Museum Store.
    • Changes: Please notify us immediately if you need to change your tour date, tour time or if your group changes in size by more than 5 people. We will make every effort to accommodate your changes. If your change results in an overpayment, we will apply the excess to a future visit or as credit in our Museum Store. If your change results in an underpayment, the additional amount will be due upon your arrival.
    • Late Arrivals: Please make every effort to arrive on time. Due to limited space in our entry areas, tour groups arriving early may be asked to wait outside the Museum until their scheduled tour time. If your group arrives late, we may not be able to extend your tour past the previously scheduled departure time, although we will make an effort to do so if possible. If your group is unavoidably delayed, please notify us immediately with your estimated time of arrival so that we can best prepare to accommodate your group. You may do this by calling the Admission Desk at 215-925-2800, ext. 130.
