Payment, cancellations, and FAQ

Payment
Payment for School Programs is due upon arrival or in advance of services rendered. Accepted forms of payment include New York City Department of Education Purchase Orders, cash, checks, Visa, American Express, or MasterCard. Please make checks payable to The Museum of Modern Art. MoMA’s tax ID number is 13-1624100; DoE contract number QR164CH; DoE vendor code MID 015.

Cancellations
Cancellation requests must be made in writing no fewer than two weeks in advance of your visit. A processing fee for cancellations may apply. Please email or fax your request. Please review our full cancellation policy on your confirmation letter and contact us at groupservices@moma.org or (212) 708-9685 with any questions.

What if we’re late?
If your group is late, your program will be shortened accordingly and finish at the originally designated time. Groups more than 30 minutes late will be canceled.

Where do I check in?
Arrive 15 minutes before your scheduled start time to check-in at the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, at 4 West Fifty-fourth Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues. Once you’ve booked a visit with Groups and Tours, they will send you a confirmation package that details all of the logistical information.

Can my class stay in the Museum after my guided visit?
Yes, your class can stay at MoMA after their visit on Mondays through Fridays. After the tour, your class will receive entrance tickets and may come and go freely for the rest of the day. We recommend that chaperones and students divide themselves into smaller groups, as large groups cannot be accommodated in the galleries at the same time. Also, your class may not enter the galleries prior to your designated tour start time.

Where can I eat my lunch?
Unfortunately, as MoMA doesn’t have lunchroom facilities for students, you will be responsible for finding a place to eat. Here is a partial list of public spaces in midtown where students can eat lunch.

How many students can fit in a group?
The maximum group size is 30 students, with a few exceptions. Smaller classes may not be combined to compose a group larger than 30 students.

How many chaperones should I bring?
We recommend bringing one chaperone for every 10 students. One group may not have more than five chaperones.

What should my students bring?
Students don’t need to bring anything; we’ll provide all necessary supplies. Students will check their belongings when they arrive, so they should not bring any valuables.

* Title 1 is a national program that provides funding to schools with high percentages of children from low-income families. Approximately 70 percent of New York City public schools receive Title 1 funding.
