By Reservation Field Trips
Tours and educational programs are available for all ages.
The fee for most school tours is $3.00 per student.
All group tours of ten or more are required to have advance reservations. In order to allow us to schedule necessary staff and volunteers, we ask that reservations be made at least two weeks in advance. However, in order to ensure that the tour date of your preference is available, earlier is better.
To make reservations, call 716-884-0096.
Due to space limitations, our capacity is limited, and we cannot accommodate two groups at once. Maximum group size is 50 persons.
A student/chaperone ratio of about 10/1 is recommended. Expect that tour groups larger than 12 will be divided up into smaller groups of 10-12 persons during your visit. Each of the small tour sub- groups should have a chaperone with them. Teachers and chaperones are responsible for maintaining discipline during the visit.
Grade 4 and up
1 hour for up to 25 persons, 2 hours for 25-50
