Self-guided Visit

Self-guided tours allow you to pick and choose the exhibits and experiences your group wants to explore. Take a leisurely tour through all of our interactive spaces, or create an itinerary in advance to be sure you don't miss the best parts! Educators are welcome to preview the museum, free of charge, in advance of your visit. Just bring your educator ID and present it at the BMS admissions desk.

You can also customize and enhance your self-guided visit by adding a workshop, 3D film or visits to special exhibits or experiences to your itinerary.
