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. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance.
A deposit of 50% of the total amount is due on the 1st of the month prior to the date of your intended visit. This deposit will be applied to your total amount due, which must be paid in full on arrival or sooner. Payments may be made by credit card or check. Deposits are nonrefundable if a reservation is canceled less than two weeks before the reserved arrival date. No refunds of under $50 will be issued.
Please note: We do not accept Group reservations on Exploratorium Free Days.
