School Group Requests
Confirmed (in writing) school group tours may be available if arranged in advance. We prioritize school group visits on Wednesdays and Thursdays in a 1hr block between the hours of 10:00am and 12:00pm.
The 1st floor at Hamilton Grange NM houses our historic furnishings. The capacity of the 1st floor is limited to 15 visitors at all times. Tours of the 1st floor last approximately 1/2 hour. Therefore, school group visits are strictly limited to a total of 30 people including all teachers and chaperones.
NOTE: School groups must include 1 adult for every 8 students or part thereof (e.g. a class of 12 must be accompanies by 2 adults.)
Be aware that groups larger than 15 will be split into two groups to visit the historically furnished rooms. A brief film covering Hamilton's life is available for viewing by one group while the other visits the house.
School groups must reserve at least 3 weeks in advance but no more than 3 months. Date change requests and cancellations must be done no less that 48hrs before your reservation. E-mail and voice messages will not suffice. You must speak directly with a staff member. Reminder: We are closed Monday and Tuesday.
To request a reservation for a school visit, fill out the request form provided in the link above. Fax your completed request form to 646-548-9366 and we will respond. Thank you.
Be advised: There are no dining facilities available anywhere on the property. Those groups wishing to picnic may do so in adjacent St. Nicholas Park, which is separately managed by the NYC Dept. of Parks and Recreation. Picnic groups of 20 or more for St. Nicholas Park must apply for a NYC permit, here.
