When you arrive, please send ONE person to check in with the group. We will greet your group to review the Science Center rules and expectations.

We encourage you to share these rules with your guests before your visit.

  1. Children must be with an adult at all times; there are no exceptions.
  2. There is no eating or drinking in the Science Center (with the only exception of water and baby bottles)
  3. Guests are asked to use all equipment as directed. If guests do not follow directions, your entire group may be asked to leave.
  4. We ask all visitors to respect the sensory and nursing rooms by only using them for their intended purpose. Use them if you need them, and be mindful of others who may also need the space. These areas are not intended for groups to gather. 
  5. We ask all guests not to run and to use inside voices.
  6. Shoes must be worn at all times.
  7. The Monroe Science Center is not responsible for lost or stolen items.


When we greet your group, you will be given the appropriate number of wristbands. No one will be admitted without a wristband. If you have extra guests who did not prepay, they will be required to pay the regular admission price.

If your group is not arriving together, please note that no one will be admitted until the contact/leader has checked the group in and received their wristbands for distribution.

We are now taking group visit reservations on a trial basis.

We are accepting reservations through December of 2023.

If you are interested in visiting after those dates, please check back for updates.

Daily group admission is limited. To help accommodate more groups, we are opening on Tuesdays for groups on a case-by-case basis.

We offer discounted admission to groups purchasing 15 paid tickets or more. Groups must be booked in advance. Discounts for groups are not provided the day of or at the door. 

Groups: $7 per person plus tax (minimum of 15 people).

Guests under 2 are free and do not count toward the minimum number of 15.

We require one adult (16 years or older) for every ten children (under 14 years of age). This is for safety, and there are no exceptions to this rule.

Extra guests will pay the full price of $10 plus tax at the door.

We will require a final count 14 days before your visit. Numbers cannot be changed on the day of the visit, and no refunds will be issued due to no-shows of guests in your group. Payment must be received before your group may enter the science center.  If payment is not received before your scheduled arrival date, or on the day of the visit, the Monroe Science Center reserves the right to cancel your group visit, and the group rate will no longer apply. 

All guests not paid for before the group’s arrival will be charged a general admission price of $10 each at check-in. 

We currently take the following forms of payment:  cash, all major credit cards, and checks.

To request a group visit please complete the group request form and return it to the science center in person or via email at sciencecenter@monroenc.org.
