On Your Own Visits

Students at Space Shuttle ExhibitReservations are required

Groups may visit on their own without a museum-sponsored educational program; however, you must have a designated date and time for your visit. Please complete a registration form.

Upon arrival, the group also must register at the Lobby Information Desk. Each adult leader will receive a list of instructions. Students age 18 and under must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times. A ratio of one adult for every 10 students is required. A ratio of no more than eight students per adult is highly recommended for groups visiting without a guided tour. In all cases, group leaders and chaperones are held responsible for the conduct of their groups.
