Group Responsibilities and Guidelines

Chaperone Policy

Museum Manners

Please review Museum Manners for Students with your group prior to your tour.

Tour Policies

We have implemented some new policies regarding tour scheduling and logistics, so please keep these in mind when scheduling your tour.

  • Three to five days in advance of your tour, your lead docent will contact you to confirm details, go over logistics and answer any last minute questions you might have. Please be sure to touch base with this person prior to your tour.
  • Plan to arrive at the museum at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time of your tour.
  • If you are running late for your tour please call the museum’s Greeter’s Desk at 918-596-2791 to let your lead docent know that you are running late, and provide your estimated arrival time.

Please follow the recommended guidelines for chaperones, number of students per tour and grade levels. These policies have been created to help your group enjoy a positive museum experience..

Bus Parking

Bus parking is in the North Parking Lot. Bus drivers should drop off groups in the upper level of this lot. Students and chaperones then follow the sidewalk to the main entrance to meet their docents.


Groups may bring sack lunches to eat outdoors on museum grounds. There are picnic tables and trash receptacles available in Stuart Park. Stuart Park is located off of the North Parking Lot. If you plan to eat lunch on the grounds, please mention this when booking your tour. Also, make sure to put trash in the receptacles and leave the park the way that you found it. In case of inclement weather, we suggest eating on the bus or heading back to school because, at this time, there are no indoor eating facilities at the museum.

Museum Store

The Museum Store has T-shirts, books, toys and jewelry that will appeal to students and teachers alike. Stop by after your tour to shop our wide assortment of museum goodies. Many items are priced under $5.
