Preparing for your visit

When you arrive to the Museum, please come to the Raoul Wallenberg Place (15th Street) entrance. Have a chaperone at the front and back of your group as you line up for security. Help our security staff keep you safe by removing your hands from your pockets, taking bags off your shoulders, and listening to security staff as you go through the metal detectors.

Check in at the groups desk immediately beyond security when you arrive. We recommend groups provide at least one adult chaperone for every five students under age 18. Please supervise your group and help us to maintain a comfortable, respectful atmosphere for all our visitors.
