Group Tours
Adult and youth groups of 15 or more must reserve a guided tour with the museum to guarantee staff guide(s). Please call the museum at least 4 weeks in advance at (913) 248-2360. Group tours can include customized content based on group specialized interests or age range, and we really recommend them for the best possible museum experience.

Groups should plan for approximately one hour time depending on the group's schedule and requests, with extra time to visit other museum areas following the tour.

Guided tours are complimentary with general admission rates.

Youth Groups
Youth group visits of 40 or more children are eligible to book our Field Trips program, a hands-on activity visit available in the spring and fall seasons. Please visit our School Field Trips page for details and rates. Summer groups can reserve self-guided visits during our Time Travelers programs for engaging hands-on activities on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Visit our Time Travelers page for details.

Self-Guided Groups
Groups of 15 or more who plan to self-guide the museum without staff are still asked to notify the museum ahead of your visit to ensure there are no other schedule conflicts that would impact your visit and to ensure staff can give you a full welcome and orientation.
