- Credit Card via phone or secure link in advance
- Mailed Check
- Card/Cash/Check upon arrival
- DOE Purchase Order
Are teachers included in the 4 free adults?
Yes, adults include all teachers or chaperones. Any additional teachers or chaperones are $13/person. They may pay upon arrival.
Do paraeducators or supporting adults need to pay the additional fee?
Paraeducators or other required student supports are not required to pay the additional fee. Please declare how many paras/supporting adults will be joining your group on your request form so we can make sure space is available.
Do I pay per student?
No. CMA visit fees are a flat rate for 1-30 students or 1-15 students for D75 or groups of students with disabilities. You are welcome to divide the rate per student at your own school, but the payment to CMA is a flat fee that is not based on the number of students attending.
Do you offer discounts or scholarships?
CMA does not offer discounts on group visits. If your school qualifies as Title 1, you may apply for our Title 1 Scholarship, which invites 1 group (up to 30 students) to visit CMA free of charge. We offer a limited number of scholarships per year.
What are the rules for the Title 1 Scholarship?
If your school or group qualifies at Title 1, you may apply for our Title 1 Scholarship. This scholarship invites 1 group (up to 30 students) to attend a CMA visit free of charge. This scholarship can be awarded to 1 group per school per school year.
When and how do I apply for the scholarship?
CMA accepts Title 1 Scholarship applications on a first-come, first-served basis. If you qualify, there is a section about Title 1 Scholarships on the booking request.
Can we use free passes we received in the past to visit again as a group?
No. Admit-A-Kid or Family Passes are for students to visit during public hours with their family or friends. They cannot be used to cover the fee for a group visit.
