Field Trip FAQs:

How far in advance must a field trip be booked?
At least 1 week in advance. Failure to provide 1 week notice notice will add $1.50 ($7.00) per person to the Field Trip rate. 30 days in advance is recommended because a limited number of field trip reservations are available each day. The sooner the better to receive a preferred date and time.

Can field trips be booked any day of the week?
Yes, field trips can be booked any day of the week.

Is there a place to eat lunch?
Outside food and drinks are not allowed in the Museum. Your groups can pre-order food or snacks from our Kazoo's U-STOP Cafe.  If you order from our Cafe your group is able to utilize our Cafe seating. There are options for picnic spots in the surrounding area if you wish to bring your own food or snacks. 

Is there a cancellation fee?
Not if made at least two days prior to your scheduled visit. Groups that fail to cancel/reschedule or do not show up will be billed a $25 cancellation fee. Cancellations due to unexpected school closings may be rescheduled.
