Guidelines For Requests
- General Tour Groups: 20 person minimum & 2 weeks advance notice. We reccomend this type of tour for adult groups rather than student groups.
- Student and Youth Groups: 10 student minimum & 3 weeks advance notice.
- Chaperone Policy: Grades PreK-3: one adult per five students; Grades 4-6: one adult per 10 students; Grades 7-10: one adult per 15 students. An adult with a baby or small child is not a suitable chaperone.
- Cancellation Policy: All reserved Museum tours and programs are free and supported by staff and volunteers. We ask that groups who need to cancel a reservation, or expect to arrive later than planned, call our Welcome Desk (DC: 202-633-2211 or VA: 703-572-4118). If reserved groups do not alert Museum staff to a cancellation at least 24 hours in advance, your group may not be eligible to reserve future programs.
