Chaperone Policy

City Museum is designed to be enjoyed by children of all ages. However, visitors under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a chaperone 18 years of age or older. Chaperones must accompany children through City Museum (you may not ‘station’ your chaperones) and are responsible for their conduct and well being.

Proof of age required. After 5PM on Fridays and Saturdays, all visitors under the age of 18 must have an adult with a valid ID and a paid admission in attendance.

(Adult is considered any guest over the age of 18 and a valid ID should contain both photo and birth date.) For groups visiting at night, City Museum requires a 1 adult to every 8 children ratio.

City Museum does not permit peer chaperones.


  • For every 8 tickets purchased you will receive one free chaperone ticket.
  • All groups must bring at least one adult for every 8 children.
  • Free Chaperone admission does not apply to the rooftop.

If you have more than one adult for every 6 children, the remaining adults will be admitted at the group rate.

*Groups are defined as any collection of people, 12 or more aged 3 and up (No minimum number required for Scouts) Special needs groups should contact the Groups Coordinator for details about pricing and chaperone ratios.

For school groups visiting us on a weekday, a place for sack lunches is available for your use at no additional charge. Just be sure to schedule your 30-minute lunchtime when making your reservation.
