9:30 AM  –  11:30 AM

Each Self-Guided Group Visit runs from 9:30-11:30am, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays.

A Self-Guided Group Visit is perfect for teachers or organizations looking to explore on their own. Can be scheduled for groups between 10 (minimum) and 60 (maximum) children and their *adult chaperones.

All groups are required to have one adult chaperone for every 5 children visiting the museum. Any additional chaperones beyond this ratio will be charged regular admission to the museum (they may use discount programs if applicable but there is not a discount for attending with the group). Please note that we no longer offer classrooms for snack or lunch. 

Fees: The fees for a Self-Guided Group Visit are tiered flat rates based on number of participants.

10-20 Students + 4 Adult Chaperones: $120
21-30 Students + 6 Adult Chaperones: $180
31-40 Students + 8 Adult Chaperones: $250
41-50 Students + 10 Adult Chaperones: $320
51-60 Students + 12 Adult Chaperones: $390

* 1-to-1 Aides are ALWAYS free and do not count towards the total adult chaperones

The non-refundable $50 deposit purchased here will reserve your date and time. We will reach out to you after you reserve and confirm the number of children and adults joining this program. The balance must be paid 2 weeks prior to the visit date.

Title 1 Schools: If you are from a school-wide Title 1 NH School, then you can schedule a FREE Self-Guided Group Visit with a minimum of 10 participants, and a MAXIMUM of 60 students + up to 12 adult chaperones, depending on the group size. If this applies to your school, please choose the "MIR Self-Guided Group Visit" price type below to reserve a date/time for $0. Once we receive your reservation, we will confirm that you are from a Title 1 school. Please note that we will still need you to answer the questions about number of participants, etc. 

Drop-in Programs: Due to the discounted rate of group visits, special drop-in activities happening at the Museum that are available for regular visitors, are not available for groups. If you would like a special activity during your visit, consider booking an Educator-led STEAM Workshop for your group.

When booking this visit online, please only put in the number "1" when choosing the options below (in other words, you won't put in the number of visitors here. You are only reserving the date and paying the deposit here.) Right after booking you will receive an email with a prompt for you to send more information to us about your total numbers, contact info, etc.
