School Program FAQs
Reservation requests should be made at least three weeks in advance. Groups of ten or more that arrive at the door without advance reservations may be turned away if the museums are too crowded to accommodate them. If they can be admitted, they must pay full admission fees rather than the reduced group rate.
Large groups must be divided into groups of 25-30 students and enter the museum at least 30 minutes apart. Old South Meeting House can easily accommodate groups up to 75 people.
Groups that arrive without enough chaperones will not be admitted to either museum. Chaperones must remain with students at all times and actively supervise the visit. One adult for every ten students will be included in the price. There will be a fee for additional adults.
