Thank you for your interest in visiting the Exploratorium. We offer special rates for groups of ten or more. We can also arrange reservations for our famous Tactile Dome—a journey through total darkness—or we can make reservations for one of our 45-minute guided tours. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance.
You will be contacted by the reservation staff to finalize details of your visit. A $50 deposit is required at time of booking in order to secure your reservation date and time. This deposit will be applied to your total amount due, which must be paid in full upon or prior to arrival. Payment may be made by credit card or check. Deposits are nonrefundable if a reservation is cancelled within two weeks of the reserved arrival date.
Please note: We do not accept Group reservations on Exploratorium Free Days.
Also note: If you are a lead teacher planning a regular School Field Trip, a tour operator, or if you would like to rent all or part of the museum for a private or corporate event, please use the following links:
