Frequently Asked Questions

What will we be eating?

Meals are served in our cafeteria. Any dietary concerns can be indicated on registration forms. With advance notice, we will do our best to accommodate food allergies and dietary needs. Contact our Bookings Office for the Camp-In menu.

Does the Museum provide bedding/cots?

Due to health and safety concerns, we do not provide any of the sleeping items needed to stay overnight. Foam or air mattresses bigger than twin or double are not allowed because of limited space. Contact our Bookings Office for a suggested packing list.

Are there shower facilities?

There are no shower facilities available to participants.

What are your transportation policies?

Groups/families are responsible for their transportation during their Camp-In. In the event of an emergency evacuation that prevents participants from staying overnight, groups/families will need transportation to leave the Museum. The transportation driver(s) may stay offsite as long as they can reach the Museum within half an hour to pick up participants.

When would a Camp-In be cancelled?

A minimum of 50 participants per Camp-In is required. Cancellation due to severe weather is made by the Museum with input from the parties booking by 3:00 p.m. the day of the Camp-In. In the event of cancellation, each group is responsible for contacting all their participants.

If a Camp-In is cancelled because of low numbers or severe weather, your group will be offered an alternate date. If your group cannot attend on the alternate date, we will issue you a full refund.
