We strongly recommend the following ratios for student supervision (by adults) when visiting the Museum.
Preschool to Grade 8 • K to Cycle 1 (secondary)
Grades 9 and up • Cycle 2 (secondary) and up
During programs, Museum educators encourage teachers and accompanying adults to participate and assist. Proper supervision during free time is also essential to creating a safe and fun atmosphere at the Museum. Teachers and supervisors are expected to remain with their students at all times. Teachers may preview the Museum at any time at no cost by presenting proof of their teaching status at the admission desk.
