Limited timed reservations are available for docent-led educational experiences in the Museum’s Experiential Learning Center (ELC). Outside the scheduled bookings, the ELC can be visited by museum guests at their convenience. The Museum’s education department is available to help teachers and youth leaders plan student visits and provide specialized instruction. 

The Museum also offers paid attractions, including virtual reality and ride simulators. Groups will receive discounted rates and 1 free voucher for every 20 reservations made for paid attractions.

Boxed lunches are available for purchase as well. The Museum features a café, though groups of 50 or more are encouraged to schedule lunch in shifts, due to limited space.

The Museum does not currently offer guided group tours. Trained docents are stationed throughout the galleries to answer visitors’ questions.

COVID safety and health precautions may impact ELC access and future use, availability will be monitored with reservations in real time upon opening.
