Reservations:
Reservations are guaranteed once you have booked with Group Scheduling and received a Field Trip Reservation Form in return. The Reservation Form serves as your invoice. You may submit the Reservation Form online here, or email marciad@boothmuseum.org with your request. This is not an online booking system, so please be aware that you will still need to receive the Reservation Form in return for confirmation of your field trip. Cancellations are required at least 2 weeks prior to your scheduled visit unless the cancellation is due to an act of nature. We will work with you to reschedule an alternate date.

Payment:
The Reservation Form serves as your invoice. Payment is due on the day of the visit and must be made with one check for the entire student group. Parents and chaperones may pay individually. We accept checks made to Booth Western Art Museum. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. Purchase Orders are also accepted.

Program Times:
Please check in at the museum 15 minutes prior to your programs scheduled start time. Both morning and afternoon program times are available.

Photography:
Cameras are welcome at Booth Western Art Museum for private, non-commercial use only. Photography is not permitted in special exhibitions or areas designated as “No Photography.” Flashes, video cameras, selfie sticks, monopods and tripods are prohibited.

Candace Alexander McNair Museum Store:
As part of a school field trip, your students will have time to visit the Candace Alexander McNair Museum Store. In our gift shop, we have a special table just for children where items range in price from $0.25 to $5.00 plus tax. For more information and examples, click here.

Lunch:
If planning to eat lunch at the Museum, space must be reserved when making your reservation; otherwise, students are welcome to picnic outside on the grounds in designated areas (we do not have any picnic tables). Please bring large garbage bags or boxes to take the trash back to your school. In case of inclement weather, inside facilities may be available.
