Group Visits

Enriched Visits

Request Registration

Our Enriched Visits are facilitated using a problem-based learning approach to aid in the development of children’s creative problem solving abilities. Children will build on their 21st century skills as they are presented with a problem to investigate, and work independently and collaboratively to discover solutions. After the one hour program, groups will be set free to explore the Museum on a self-guided tour for the remaining time.

Please note: Enriched Visits are offered October through May. If you would like to visit the Museum with your group over the summer, please register for a Self-Guided Visit.

Self-Guided Visits


Through a self-guided tour, your group will enjoy 2.5 hours of open-ended, free-choice play and learning in our unique exhibitions spaces.  Framed by the majestic backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Museum is a space for imaginations to run wild.

We invite you to take a tour of the Museum and learn about the Daily Programming made available to your group on the day of your visit!   

Please review our Group Visit Policy and FAQ’s before scheduling your group reservation.

If you have additional questions, please contact us at (415) 339-3963 or by email groupvisits(at)
