FAQ

What if I need to cancel my tour?
All cancellations must be received in writing at least two weeks prior to the scheduled visit. Please review our full cancellation policy on your confirmation letter and contact Group Services at groupservices@moma.org or (212) 708-9685 with any questions. Cancellation and other processing fees may apply.

What if we’re late?
If your group is late, your program will be shorted 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 Group Services, 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 may 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 chaperones and students to divide themselves into smaller groups as large groups cannot be accommodated in the Galleries at the same time. Also, your class may not enter MoMA early before 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 may 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 that’s 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 to their MoMA visit.
