School groups will be invoiced after the visit to reflect an accurate number of attendees. Invoices are emailed and mailed to the addresses provided on the visit request form within three business days of your visit. Payment must be consolidated into one transaction.
All other group types (i.e. families, summer camps, daycares, businesses, senior care centers, homeschool etc.) will pay upon arrival. We accept all major credit cards, cash, and company checks (no personal checks accepted). Payment must be consolidated into one transaction.
Admissions & Ticketing
School teachers, staff and bus drivers with a valid school ID receive complimentary general admission when bringing a group.
Parent chaperones will receive the discounted group rate at the door. Simply notify our staff which school or group you are with.
Using Your Membership
• Adult chaperones may use their GSC membership or reciprocal membership for admission if they are not included on the group's reservation.
• Students/children may use their GSC membership or reciprocal membership for general admission only, provided they are accompanied by a parent or guardian who also holds a membership. The adult must remain with the child for the entirety of the visit.
• Students/children may not use their GSC membership or reciprocal membership if the group or field trip is attending a Science Presentation and/or OmniSphere show. In this case the students/children must be included on the confirmation and pay the applicable group admission.
