• A deposit of $20 is required to secure your reservation and must be paid with a credit card.
• If we do not receive your deposit one week prior to your visit, we reserve the right to cancel your group visit.
• If your group must cancel its visit, the museum requires a minimum of 24 hours advance notice, or your deposit will be forfeited.
• Please arrive ON TIME to the Museum. Late arriving groups will miss all or part of their program in order to respect our Museum scheduling. If your group is more than 10 minutes early, you will be asked to wait in the lobby until your reservation time.
• Upon arrival, the group leader should check in at the front desk, while the group waits quietly outside or in the lobby. Please keep clear of the main entrance.

• In case of severe weather, the Museum reserves the right to reschedule or change a program.
• We accept checks, cash and credit cards for payment. Please make checks payable to ‘Museum of Chinese in America’. Please note: If your school issues a check for the total amount of your visit, it is non-refundable.
