Payment in full must be received two weeks in advance. The Museum is not responsible for lost or missing payments. The Museum accepts checks, money orders, Discover, Visa, MasterCard, and American Express.

Checks and money orders should be made payable to "American Museum of Natural History." Please write your confirmation number, name of school, teacher's name, telephone number, program name, and date of visit on checks and money orders to ensure appropriate processing.

Allow at least 5 weeks in advance to secure your trip and to process your request. If you have changes (new field trip date, reduction/increase of reservation numbers, or cancellations), please call Central Reservations 14 days prior to the scheduled visit in order to receive a refund.



Before you call Central Reservations to book your field trip, please use these worksheets to map out your day at the Museum. Keep them handy to expedite your call!
