Planning a Group Visit?

Faculty and staff members who are planning to bring a group of students to any of the institutions listed on the Museum Gateway homepage may receive free admission along with their group. Before your visit, please contact the museum directly to arrange for your group; many museums require advance notice, and some charge a tour fee that is separate from the free admission for the students.
