You may pay for the tour either by cash, check or charge on the day of the tour. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. Please make checks payable to the Swedish American Museum. The cost is $2 per student. Chaperones and teachers are free until the maximum number of chaperones is reached.
We request that a minimum of four chaperones and a maximum of one for every five students be provided for grades pre-K through four and a maximum of one for every ten students for grades five and up.. There will be a $2 per person charge for the number of adults that exceed the maximum.
Although nametags are not required, we highly recommend them. They allow our Educators to communicate much more effectively during the tour. Please write names large enough to be read.
If you would like to eat lunch at the Museum please make arrangements before your visit. To avoid confusion please label lunches with each student’s name. Students may picnic in our classroom and common areas. The classroom seats about 35 people. Remaining students can eat lunch on the benches in the hallway. Sweden is one of the few countries in the world with “right of common access”. This means that people may picnic, camp, hike, or swim wherever they choose, as they long as they leave each place as they found it. We please ask the same of your students. Cleaner, towels, and a broom will be provided. We do not sell beverages or have a vending machine at the museum
Children may visit our museum store at the end of their tour. Please let us know when booking your group if your students will be visiting the store.
If your group needs to use the washroom facilities before their tour begins please let the tour director know as soon as you arrive. Washrooms and drinking fountains are located on the first and third floors of the Museum. Only the third floor washrooms can accommodate large groups.
