Phone Reservations for First-time Visitors

If this is your first time making a reservation, your profile does not have a school affiliation or if you prefer to book over the phone, follow these steps:

  • Choose an exhibition hall or school group program as the starting point of your visit.
  • Download the school field trip planning tool below to map out your day at the Museum. You will need to provide all of the information to a Museum representative, so have that it in hand before you proceed to the next step.
  • Call Central Reservations at 212-769-5200 Monday-Friday, 9 am-5 pm, to book your field trip.  Faxes or e-mails will not be accepted for school group reservations. To ensure availability, please book your field trip at least 5 weeks in advance.
