Self-Guided School Group Visits

Self-guided school groups must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance and can be scheduled Here »

Self-guided school group visits are limited to a maximum of 15 students per hour and are typically scheduled between 2:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., depending on availability.

Each prescheduled self-guided registration includes:

  • Free Admission for two adult chaperons* (One adult chaperon per 10 students is required.)

*Payment is required for additional adults.

Self-guided groups enter through the FRONT entrance of the Museum. Chaperons must always stay with students.


College Groups
College groups must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. A partnership with Boise State University provides free individual admission for Boise State students, faculty, and staff through August 21, 2024 with their valid Boise State identification cards.


Unscheduled Visits
To ensure high-quality experiences, unscheduled groups are not admitted to the Museum when their visit conflicts with already-scheduled groups and BAM group policies. If unscheduled groups are allowed to enter based on current visitation, regular Admission fees apply. Contact BAM at 208-345-8330 ext. 118 to make a reservation at least two weeks in advance.
