Our school programs are for one hour unless otherwise specified and are $3.50 per student, per program. We recommend a ratio of one teacher/adult per ten students to ensure required duty of care on the programs; accompanying teachers/adults within this ratio are free of charge. Any additional teachers/adults with the group will be charged the museum entry fee. Bookings for school groups are essential.
