Self-guided Visits

Youth Education Groups

We are continuing to offer Self-Guided visits for education groups of all kinds (learning pods, homeschool groups, etc.) in which you explore the Museum independently. Book your visit in advance using our Self-Guided Educational Visit form. We do our best to respond to registrations quickly. However, due to the high number of registrations, you will hear from us within a week of the registration submission date. Self-guided visit registrations must be submitted at least two weeks in advance of the requested visit dates.

We offer Self-Guided educational groups an admission rate of $5 per student and $5 per accompanying adult.  Self-Guided Learning Packets are available to help support student exploration during your self-guided visit. During a Self-Guided visit, you may attend any of our daily interpretive talks and programs. Space is very limited for the daily talks and must be reserved at Admissions when you arrive at the Museum.


Wearing face coverings, whether made of cloth or paper, is a requirement for all Museum visitors over the age of 2 while indoors and outdoors. Due to new government guidelines, medical exceptions can no longer be made. Paper face coverings are available for purchase at Admissions. Those younger than age 2 will not be expected to wear a face covering. 

Face shields are no longer an acceptable form of face covering at the Museum, in alignment with the Oregon Health Authority’s updated recommendations. Face shields are only accepted when the visitor has a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask or when visitors need to see mouth motions in order to communicate (i.e. for communicating with people with hearing impairments).

Thank you for wearing face coverings — together, we can all help keep each other healthy.
