While we do not require groups to schedule a museum guide for their visit, we ask any group over 10 to let us know in advance when they will arrive so we can ensure a pleasant experience. Groups must call at least a week in advance to be eligible for the group admission rate. Weekends are busy at the museum, so large groups that show up unannounced may be asked to split up or wait to enter the galleries until other visitors depart.
