Tours and Group Rates
Tours and group rates are available upon request. We request that your group consist of at least 10 people and no more than 50 people in one area; exceptions to these requirements may be made upon approval of request.
Tour prices are $2 per child for one venue plus $1 for added venues, therefore a trip to the Durham Children’s Museum and Blakemore Planetarium would total $3 per child. We ask for a minimum number of students and that one adult chaperone is provided per 10 children. Adult chaperones and teachers are free of charge. Payment is expected upon arrival unless otherwise prearranged. Payment should be gathered before arriving and presented as one payment; this makes it easier to process your group into the Museum in a timely manner. Payment can be made in cash, check or credit card, please make checks out to: The Museum of the Southwest. If you need a receipt please let visitor services know and one will be provided for you.

The Museum staff strives to provide you with an educational and exciting tour and visitation experience, we encourage you and your students to provide feedback in the form of letters or pictures; appropriate student comments are displayed in the lobby area of the Durham Children’s Museum.
Any questions or comments can be directed to the director of the Children’s Museum or Planetarium. For more information please contact:
