Planet Word receives a high volume of requests for group visits during the summer. To ensure a fair and equitable process, changes to the group visit date and time are limited.

The Museum requires at least one adult chaperone for every ten visitors under 17. Chaperone numbers count towards group totals.

The required chaperones MUST be present and engaged with the students at all times while in the Museum. Unchaperoned or misbehaving groups are subject to being escorted out of the Museum and may not be allowed admission in the future. Groups that arrive with fewer than the required chaperones may be denied entry.
