We invite schools to explore the Museum as part of a self-guided visit and/or an in-museum class, but are not offering Docent-led exhibition tours or classes at your school at this time (please check back later). When you do visit, please note that we follow the San Diego Unified School District COVID-19 protocol guidelines for school-based programs, which require that students, staff, and chaperones wear a mask at all times and try to maintain a minimum of 3 to 6 feet of social distancing. The district follows the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and the California Department of Public Health.
Explore our exhibits with a self-guided tour. Or experiment in our learning labs and discover treasures in behind-the-scenes-tours facilitated by museum educators, docents, and scientists. More.
