What's New?



Beginning September 1, 2014 additional adults beyond a 1:5 adult to student ratio must purchase a discounted $10.00 chaperone ticket. Tickets will be available for purchase on the day of the visit. Additional adults will also be charged for the Spider Pavilion, Butterfly Pavilion and Traveling Exhibits.

With the implementation of this new policy, we expect to be able to host up to two more classrooms each day at the Natural History Museum!
