We require a 1-week notice to cancel or reschedule programming. We will not issue a refund for cancellation less than 1 week from the original field trip date. If cancellation occurs less than 1 week before to a scheduled program, you must communicate with someone from the Education Department to confirm your cancellation. Groups who do not appear as scheduled, or do not call to inform the Museum they will be late or unable to attend must pay the full balance in addition to the $50 late fee.
