You must have a party of at least 15 people to book a group visit.  Groups over 80 will be asked to schedule their visit over multiple days.  We do group visits for all types of groups including schools, home schoolers, scouts, and adult groups.  Our museum opens at 10 am Monday – Friday, so field trips will start at 10 am or later, unless you have special circumstances.

We do not offer overnight field trips at this time. Scout groups and others may request a field trip on Friday evening, when we close at 9 pm and have stargazing outside, weather permitting.

The table below lists group rates for individual students and chaperones.

Group Rates

PreK – 12th Grade Chaperones*
Planetarium $3 $4
Timewalk $3 $4
Special Exhibition $4 $5
Activity $3 N/A
  • * One chaperone is admitted free for every 10 students.  Additional adults must pay the adult group rate of $10.
  • Minimum Group Size 15 students. If groups drop to less than 15, then you will be required to pay full price, or pay for the minimum of 15 students (whichever is less).

Field Trips combine TEKS-aligned planetarium shows, tours, and activities to provide an exciting and integrated experience for students. You choose what works for your group size, age, and interests!

You MUST fill out the Field Trip Reservation Form to reserve a date and time for your group visit and to receive an invoice. Please note that all groups must pay in a single check, credit card, or cash transaction to qualify for group rates. All chaperones will be required to supervise students. We allow teachers and chaperones in for free, up to a 10 to 1 student to teacher ratio. Additional teachers/chaperones will need to pay adult group rates.
