Education Information, Policies, and General Information

Arrival time should be at least 15 minutes prior to your first scheduled program. Scheduled programs will not be available for groups that arrive more than 10 minutes after their scheduled start time.

The maximum number of people allowed in the classrooms cannot be exceeded. Please ask the Education Department about maximum classroom capacity when making a reservation. Teachers are responsible for making sure this number is not exceeded on the day of your scheduled visit. Please have a final count of students, teachers, and chaperones upon arrival.

MOSH may combine groups of similar grade levels from different schools into the same program.

MOSH cannot be held responsible for buses being late or failing to show. Groups will be charged for scheduled programs that are missed.


The Museum does not have indoor or covered lunch facilities. However, there are picnic areas directly adjacent to MOSH in Friendship Fountain Park and along the Riverwalk. These areas are available on a first come, first served basis. Please plan accordingly for inclement weather.

All students, regardless of grade/age, must stay with a chaperone at all times. Classes that are disorderly will be asked to leave without a refund.
