Investigate the Museum's many offerings — films, presentations, and more — before making field trip reservations.
The Museum has limited funding available for students who qualify for field trip assistance. Please inquire about this if there is a need.
Multiple visits: If you return with the same students, you receive 50% off Exhibit Halls admission. When making reservations, inform Science Central that you will be visiting more than once with your students.

Chaperones and teachers may park cars in the Museum garage and will receive a $5 flat rate.

Home school groups of at least nine visitors can make reservations over the phone and gain access to discounted school group pricing for teachers, chaperones, and students.
We encourage you to collaborate to form larger groups and set up a reservation. Call Science Central at 617-723-2500. Groups of fewer than nine should go to the Box Office where normal admission rates apply.
Frequent home school visitors will find Museum membership to be a better value than standard box office pricing.
We offer several levels of membership, all of which include a variety of benefits such as IMAX and Planetarium passes, discounted parking, and admission to other science museums.
Many public libraries throughout Massachusetts provide Museum of Science passes that allow up to four people per day to visit the Museum's Exhibit Halls at a significantly reduced rate.
These passes can be used for your home school visit. Contact your local library to find out if they participate and how to reserve your pass.
