Reservations are required for all group visits and programs. Please call 619.255.0210 to make your reservation. For programs at the Museum, one adult chaperone per eight students is required and a one to five ratio is recommended. Required chaperones and carpool drivers (one to three ratio) are admitted free for general admission.
Please note the maximum class size for each program–this is to ensure the quality of your Museum experience. If you schedule multiple classes in one day at your school or community site, all classes must be held in the same room.
Programs at your school site must be scheduled in the same room per school visit. A full Education Programs Guide is available here (PDF).
