Siblings

The Anchorage Museum's policy regarding siblings states:

"The museum requests that parent chaperones not bring siblings on field trips. If it is necessary, the parent must pay full admission for the sibling(s) and any additional fees for premium exhibitions. Siblings are not allowed to participate in field trip activities."


Raven requests that if you must bring a sibling, that you attend to the sibling at all times and remain separate from the learning groups. This could be a wonderful chance for a mommy/daddy-and-me date at the museum!
