We would love to have your school here at the Great Valley Museum. Docent tour-guided Museum School visits are scheduled on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays between 9:00am and 4:00pm. After hour tours are available on a limited basis and require an additional fee. The museum reserves the right to charge group sizes of 12 or more the group admission pricing listed below. If you plan to bring a large group during public hours, please call ahead of time so we may schedule appropriate staffing.
A museum tour and animal presentation is roughly two hours. When your group arrives, we split the group in half. Group A heads into the Discovery Room for our Live Animal Presentation. Group B heads into the museum gallery with a docent, for a docent guided tour. After roughly an hour, the groups switch. Example: 70 individuals, 35 will be designated as group A and 35 will be designated as group B. When finalizing numbers, please account for teachers and any additional chaperones/attendees, as they are counted for the overall number to determine pricing.
Planetarium shows are roughly one hour. There are 100 seats in the planetarium. When your group arrives, you will line up in front of the Planetarium in 2 equal lines in order for us to usher you in. Please see previews of current shows by clicking here. When finalizing numbers, please account for teachers and any additional chaperones/attendees, as they are counted for the overall number to determine pricing.
A combo consists of pairing up the Museum Tour/Live Animal Presentation and the Planetarium Show into a three hour visit. There is a discount given to groups that choose the combo option. Please note that while our planetarium can seat 100 individuals, our museum tours can only accommodate up to 70 (this includes teachers and parents). Combos are only available for groups of up to 70.
Schools that are museum members receive a 25% discount rate from the prices below. You can check our membership page here for more benefits and information.
