Your daytime admissions for XYZT are 6+, what does that mean?
Our general policy on the age admission for XYZT exhibit is 6 and up. However, we do make exceptions on a case by case basis and request a much higher supervision from parents/adults coming in with children under the age of 6. Though the exhibit is very interactive, not all installations are meant to be touched, rather moved with and interacted at a distance. They can be more fragile than they seem. No running, no poking and no touching of the fabric screens and hardware.
Tickets are required for all attending the exhibit (babies and infants in the body carriers do not require tickets). Please note that we do not allow strollers on the main gallery floor, however, you can leave them in our lobby.
Do you offer group discounts?
Yes, we are happy to assist with group bookings for both daytime and evening admissions. Please contact our team at email@example.com if you're inquiring about a booking for a group of 10 or more.
