If you're an educator and you'd like a pre-trip Educator Preview Visit, we'll waive your exhibition admission when you arrive. Just show your school ID badge at the ticketing counter and tell the staff member that you are here to plan a field trip. You can also explore current and upcoming exhibitions and events and peruse the Artifact Gallery online.
