Groups

While county and state public health guidelines discourage gatherings between households, we cannot accommodate special rates for groups. When households can safely congregate, we anticipate a return to the group policies listed below.

The Museum and Sea Center welcome groups of 10 or more guests for a special group rate (by appointment).
