Plan your field trip
  • Field trip discounts apply to schools and youth-serving organizations that make an advance reservation at least two weeks before the date of visit for 15 or more people with one contact for the group and one method of payment. Toddlers ages 1 & 2 are not included in the minimum of 15 to receive group rates with an advance reservation.
  • In order to maintain social distancing, group reservations will be split into smaller groups of 60 people or less and will be scheduled to enter experiences at different times.
  • Groups must follow all Cincinnati Museum Center rules and regulations, including COVID-19 protocols. Information on how to prepare for your visit can be found here:
  • Cincinnati Museum Center is open Thursday – Monday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For field trip requests with an earlier start time a fee of $100 is required.
  • All groups are required to make a reservation.
  • Lunch tables must be reserved in advance and cannot be added to the reservation on the day of the visit. The cost for lunch tables is $0.50 per person. Groups that do not reserve lunch tables in advance are not permitted to each lunch at CMC. School/Group Boxed Lunch Order Form
