Pricing

The price for school visits is $7 per student ($4 per student for Title One Schools).

School visits must have a minimum of 18 students and a maximum of 30 students. If you would like to bring more than one class, please register each class separately. One instructor and up to five chaperones receives free admission with each school visit registration. School visit groups are required to abide by a ratio of one chaperone for every five students.The minimum cost of a school visit is $180. Groups smaller than 18 must still pay the minimum fee to cover our staff and educational resources.

A $20 registration fee is required to reserve your visit and will be applied to the total cost of the visit. The deposit must be paid online via credit or debit card at the time of registration. Note that each registered time slot will require a $20 deposit.

Payment

The balance of the total due for a school visit must be paid upon check-in at the museum. ($7 per student plus $10 per adult for any number above the up to six complimentary instructor and chaperone admissions, less the $20 deposit.) Checks are preferred - sorry, we can only accept one check. Make them payable to the Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture. Alternatively, you may be invoiced. Please provide the updated number of student participants at check-in. Upon receipt of the invoice, payment may be made by check or credit card.
