TEACHER GUIDELINES WHEN SCHEDULING A VISIT
DAYS FOR SCHEDULING A MUSEUM VISIT:
While we do schedule school groups in December, January and February, planning a visit for October, November, March, April, May and June provides the better weather for visiting the Museum’s outdoor aircraft. If it is raining on the day of your visit, snow on the ground, or too cold for the children to be outdoors for a length of time, our tour guides will talk about the aircraft while your students do a drive by on your bus, weather permitting.
CHAPERONES: For school groups in grades three through high school, we require one chaperon for every 10 students and these adults receive free admission. Adults above the required chaperon ratio count are $3 each. Parking is free.
LUNCH SPACE: As the Museum has limited programming space, we do not always have indoor space for eating lunch. You could eat on your bus and you are welcome to bring blankets and towels for sitting and lunching at the grassy area outside of the Museum's entrance.
PAYMENT: After a date is confirmed for your visit, a confirmation form will be sent to you. When you receive this, we require a signed copy of the paperwork and a $25 non refundable deposit to be sent to the Museum to reserve the date for your group. The balance of the payment is due upon arrival for your visit. The Museum accepts checks, cash and credit cards for payment.
