Is there a museum café?

The museum does not have a café.

Can we eat at the SGU cafeteria?

You can call the cafeteria at 405-878- 5474 to determine if this is a possibility.

Why can’t I bring in a backpack or large bag?

Due to space constraints, backpacks and bags larger than 9x12 are not allowed in the galleries. Please check these at the front desk or put them with the student belongings. You can borrow a smaller bag from the front desk if you need to carry your phone, wallet, etc.

What is the maximum number of people that can make up a group?

We can comfortably manage up to 75 people with advance notice.

What is the minimum number of people to make up a group for a tour?

We give tours to groups of 10 or more people (students and adults). Groups of 10 or more students are eligible for the Start with Art field trip program (tour + art activity).

What is the cost?

To qualify for a group rate, groups must schedule at least 2 weeks in advance (1 month is recommended for optimum scheduling). The group rate is $2 for students and $4 for adults (with or without a tour). Start with Art (tour + art activity) is $3 for students and $4 for adults. The admission fee for chaperons (1 per 10 kids) and personal care attendants is waived. Discounts and scholarships are available. Visit the Field Trip page (student groups of 10 or more) or the Group Visit page for more details.

How early should we book our tour?

Groups must schedule at least 2 weeks in advance to receive the group rate. However, it is advised that you book your tour at least 1 month in advance for optimum scheduling.

What will we do at the museum?

Tours can be arranged for permanent and special exhibitions, visual thinking strategies discussions, and/or time with the education (touch) collection.
