During the fall and spring, we recommend bringing a brown-bag lunch and eating in adjacent Trevor Park, overlooking the Hudson River. Lunch Room space is subject to availability, and must be reserved in advance: $50 for up to 60 students in one room; $100 for up to 90 students in two rooms. The Museum can accommodate groups no larger than 90 for lunch. Your group is responsible for clean up. We do not have refreshments available for purchase, nor can we provide refrigeration. Please note, the Museum cannot guarantee an allergen-free environment.
Visiting the Museum Shop
If you would like to visit the Museum’s gift shop during your visit, at no additional charge, you must schedule a time slot at least one week in advance of your trip. Groups of ten at a time will be permitted in the Museum Shop, with at least one adult chaperone.
Upon arrival, your bus must pull up to the front of the Museum’s Gateway entrance. Please send one chaperone or staff member to the Lobby Desk to check in your group. To avoid any confusion, the rest of your group must wait on board your bus until the check-in procedure is completed and a Museum staff member has greeted you.
