How to Make Your Reservation

Reservations for the 2017–18 school year will open in September 2017.

NEW! In the 2017–18 school year, we'll be offering Home School Days every Monday from October 16 through March 19 (not including holidays). Stay tuned for more details when online reservations open in September!


  • Each home school family may make a single reservation for up to 10 participants.
  • Each reservation must include at least one school-age student (ages 3-18) and no more than four adults.
  • Children ages two and under are admitted free of charge and do not need to be included in reservation numbers.
  • Families may only make one Home School Days or Field Trip reservation per school year; each family must have its own reservation.

Special note: Home school groups of 10 or more school-age children may make a reservation to visit together through our Field Trip school program on a date other than Home School Days. Self-Guided Field Trip reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to the program minimums and maximums.
