- May I look around the museum while my child is in class?
Parents, guardians, or others who are picking up and dropping off children attending our classes will not be able to access the Fleet's paid admission areas without purchasing admission. However, Fleet Members can always enjoy access to the exhibit galleries with their current membership pass.
- Do I need to bring a snack?
Unless your child needs nourishment due to medical reasons, we don't anticipate they will need a snack for the class period.
- Does an adult need to accompany the child attending the session?
One adult caregiver must attend the session with their child. We ask that only one adult attend, due to classroom capacity. This hands-on program is designed for both a child and an adult to work together.

No. Siblings who are not enrolled are not permitted.

The museum galleries will not be open until 10 a.m. We encourage you to explore the galleries immediately after your Young Scientists session, free of charge.

Unless your child needs nourishment due to medical reasons, we don’t anticipate that they will need a snack for the one-hour period.
