Group Visit FAQ


To schedule a program and receive a discounted admission rate for your group you must pre-register for your program.

Where / How do I register my group?

Once you have selected the type of program that you would like for your students (Self-Guided, Guided Tour, etc…) and chosen a program focus (Museum General, Ancient Egypt, etc…) please click on any of the REGISTER TODAY! links on these pages to complete an online registration form.

Note: This registration form is not a guarantee for your program, once scheduling is verified (2-3 business days) you will receive a confirmation notice via email that will secure the registration of your program.

I registered a program last year; do I need to create a new account?

No, you can use existing accounts to register new programs. Just log in as a returning user with your email address and password (don’t worry there is a ‘forgot your password’ link,) and fill out a new program request.

Why does the registration form ask me to submit 3 dates? I know the date that I want to visit.

All of our programs are scheduled on a first come first serve basis and fill up very quickly. Submitting 3 dates ensures that if your first choice is unavailable we can check for the next best choice availability. If there is only one date your group can visit, please schedule as far in advance as you can.


We have limited funding available for Title I Schools. To apply for funding please make a note on your registration request form in the “Grant” text box and also send an email to

Do you have a max/min number of student for your programs?

For both guided and self-guided explorations, there is a minimum requirement of 10 students. We do not limit the size of groups who want to visit the museum, but because of limited space in our galleries large groups may be asked to break up in to smaller teams or rotate through the museum with designated time limits. Please contact the Education Department if you would like to discuss a large group visit.

Confirmation Notice

Your program is not booked until you receive a confirmation notice. Once you submit a registration request you will receive a confirmation letter via email once your program registration has been processed. Please give 3-5 days to process your registration request.

What if I need to re-schedule my program?

If you need to re-schedule do not send another request form, please contact the education department as soon as possible (at least 1 week in advance.)

What if…

If you have any questions, concerns, or need help, feel free to ask the education department by emailing
