School groups who visit the Museum have two field trip options. For details about these options, please go to Plan Your Field Trip.
All groups of 10 or more (including adults and seniors) must schedule their visit to the Museum through the Capital Area Visitor Services.
Groups who would like to include a visit to a Special Exhibition or 3D movie must first schedule their Museum visit through Capital Area Visitor Services. After receiving a confirmation number, the group leader should then contact the Museum box office at 919.707.9950 to make reservations. The group rate for 3D movies is currently $3/person when 10 or more tickets are purchased in one transaction. The group rate for our new special exhibition, Extreme Mammals, is $8 per person for school groups and $10 per person for adult groups of 10 or more.
