Thank you for selecting the National Museum of Play® at The Strong for your scout trip. Along with workshops, the museum offers many other exciting experiences perfect for Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Boy Scouts.
Reservations for workshop experiences must be made at least three weeks prior to the workshop date. A minimum of four scouts is required to register. Call 585-263-2700 to register or for more information.
Workshops include general museum admission, all materials, and a museum instructor to facilitate activities. Workshop times do not include free museum exploration time, but groups are invited to stay and play after the workshop at no additional fee. Scout badges are not included.
Full, non-refundable payment must be made within two weeks of booking a facilitated workshop. Cash, check, money order, or credit card (VISA, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover) may be used to pay for the entire group. Checks and money orders should be made payable to The Strong and must include the name and address of the responsible party.
Adult chaperons required
Adult chaperons are required to accompany scouts ages five to 15 on museum visits. One adult chaperon admitted to the museum free for every five scouts attending (1:5 adult-to-scout ratio). Adult chaperons are not required for scouts ages 16 to 18.
Additional adults, who are not museum members, pay full admission. Space is limited in each workshop. Siblings are not permitted. Many facilitated workshops begin before the museum opens to the public. Additional adults or children accompanying scouts will be asked to wait near the admissions desk until the museum opens.
Please review the museum guidelines before your visit.
- Chaperons must stay with their group of children while at the museum and are responsible for the safety and behavior of those children.
- Chaperons must immediately report any emergency or child separated from their group to a museum staff member.
- Be considerate of other guests in the museum.
- Food and drink are not allowed in the exhibits. They can damage exhibits and artifacts.
A museum facilitator will greet your group upon arrival. Scouts should check in at the admissions desk 15 minutes before the scheduled workshop start time.
Four-hour workshops (Junior and Older Girl) include a short lunch break. There is not enough time to visit the museum’s food court, so scouts should bring a bagged lunch. The museum cannot accommodate requests for refrigeration or heating.
