Booking Your Visit

Field trip itineraries are customized for your group and based on program selections. When completing the School Reservation Request Form, double-check the accuracy of your information and provide an estimation of parents/chaperones who are not included in the reservation. An accurate total of participating adults and students is required at least one week prior to your visit. Programs fill up quickly – book early to ensure your desired date and programs!

Preparing Your Visit
Preparing for Your Visit Day

Include all student fees in the final payment, which must be made on the day of your visit. School staff members accompanying students are admitted free of charge. Checks made out to Louisiana Art & Science Museum, cash, and credit cards are all accepted. Refunds for overpayments will be mailed to your school minus a $15 processing fee.

An accurate count of the students, school staff, and parents/chaperones attending the visit is required at check-in. If your itinerary requires you to divide your students into equal sub-groups, such as A, B, C, or D, please do so before leaving your school.

Review your confirmation packet for policies and procedures regarding cancellations. One week before your visit date, you will be emailed information about parking downtown. Please share parking information with parents/chaperones and bus drivers.

During Your Visit

We welcome you to take photographs in hands-on galleries, during classroom programs, and before and after programs in the planetarium theater. Photography and videography may not be permitted in all galleries.
