Book Ahead

All groups must register at least two weeks in advance.  Docent led programs are available September through June.  Self-guided visits can be scheduled all year.



Submitting a request for a class visit is not a confirmation of your reservation.  We will contact you to confirm your reservation.  Your confirmation letter must be presented at the admission desk upon your arrival.



The museum does not have a cafeteria and there are no indoor dining facilities. Several outdoor areas are available for students who bring lunch. In case of inclement weather, limited lunch space may be available indoors. Please note that indoor lunch space cannot be reserved in advance and is not guaranteed. We recommend making arrangements to eat on the bus as an alternative.



Due to construction, the parking lot has been relocated to the east side of Whitney Avenue, across from the Museum.  Limited bus parking is available on Sachem Street.  Buses may also park at IKEA in New Haven after dropping off on Sachem Street.
