Book a Group Visit


Groups of 10 or more are eligible to receive discounted child admission, and free admission for adult chaperones.† Requested tour dates are confirmed on a first-come, first-served basis, and are subject to availability. A minimum of 10 days advance notice for reservation requests is required; we will make every effort to satisfy late requests, but cannot guarantee accommodation. Requests are usually responded to within 3 to 5 business days.

Reservations are secured with a non-refundable 50% deposit, and should be considered tentatively held until MCM has received the deposit. Deposits are due no later than three weeks after booking. Please contact  our group visits team if you think you will need a deposit due date extension. Family memberships, coupons, and guest passes may not be used toward your payment.

Please note that the museum cannot accommodate unscheduled group visits of 12 people or more.  Groups arriving without a reservation may be declined admittance or required to pay full-price admission.
