Drop off and Pick up:
No children are left unattended in the museum. The museum does not open to the public until 10 a.m., so after drop off, we ask that you please wait outside of the museum or in your vehicle if you wish to bring in other children to play in the museum that day; you will need to pay general admission for this unless you are a member.
Please be on time when dropping off and picking up students. There is a fee for late pick-ups: if you are more than 10 minutes late picking up your child(ren), a late fee of $15 will be applied per child.
