Early Childhood Group Policies Agreement

Lunch Policy:
Since the Missouri History Museum facilitates and hosts a variety of daily events, we do not have space for groups to eat lunch inside the Museum.
Please make arrangements to eat prior to arrival, on your bus, outside in Forest Park, or elsewhere off-site.

Cancellation Policy:
All guided programs at the Missouri History Museum are free of charge. However, because guided experiences require the use of Museum resources and personnel, we require at least seven days’ notice for any cancellation of a guided program. A cancellation as early as possible is requested so groups on our waiting list can be confirmed.
In the event of a cancellation with less than 7 days’ notice, or in the event of a no-show, we will bill your group a $50 cancellation fee. Days when schools and daycares are cancelled (as for inclement weather) are the only exception to this policy.

Weekend Visit Policy:
Effective September 1st, 2016, any group of 24 or more children in History Clubouse and/or an early childhood group registered for a guided program on a Saturday or Sunday will be charged $150.

No visit will be considered booked (no times, galleries, or guides reserved) until a confirmation letter has been issued by the Missouri History Museum.
