Two weeks before your field trip:
  • Did I receive my confirmation email after I made the reservation?
  • Did I arrange reliable transportation?
  • Did I submit my payment (credit card, check or purchase order) to Cincinnati Museum Center at least one week in advance?
  • Did I arrange for our method of payment through my school administration?
  • Did I explain any specific accommodations we need?
  • Did I give the reservationist my e-mail address so I can receive my reminder e-mail?
  • Do we need to adjust our itinerary for any reason?
