Individual Registration Fall Schedule 2021

Individual registration is now available for the 2021 – 2022 school year! Through this unique online registration, your child will have access to exclusive hands-on labs and tickets to the permanent exhibition halls.

  • 1-Hour Weekday Lab = $13 for a member; $18 for a non-member
  • 1-Hour Dissection Lab or Discovery Lab = $15 for a member; $20 for a non-member
  • 2-Hour Lab = $35 for a member; $40 for a non-member

Cancellations & Refunds

Due to limited staff time and supplies, each lab sale will be considered final.
Registrations are not transferrable from child to child.

Please note: The Museum reserves the right to cancel labs that do not meet minimum enrollment. If a lab is canceled by the Museum, patrons will be contacted no later than three business days prior to the scheduled lab and have the opportunity to switch their enrollment to another scheduled lab or receive a full refund.

Inclement Weather Policy

We will still offer scheduled labs in the event of inclement weather, unless the museum closes. The museum will post any closures on a banner on our website,

If labs are cancelled due to inclement weather there will be no refunds or exchanges.

Safety Procedures

For your child’s safety, all lab attendees MUST be escorted to and from their lab room by a parent or guardian and signed in. Due to limited chaperone seating inside the lab classroom, we ask that parents and guardians stay nearby in the hall. Please be prompt about picking your child up at the end time of the lab.

While we realize that leaving your contact information each day at sign-in may not always be convenient, in the event of an emergency we wish to have the most accurate contact information for you.
