  • Payment must accompany registration to reserve a spot in a class or workshop. Online sales may only be completed with a debit/credit card. If you wish to pay by cash or check, please call us to ensure a spot is available and then bring payment to the museum or mail it to us.
  • In order to receive member pricing, the person paying for the class must be a member of Stuhr Museum. Stuhr Museum members will receive an e-mail containing the discount code on March 14 to enter at checkout. Refunds will not be issued if the discount is not entered at checkout. If you do not receive the e-mail or have updated your e-mail address since your last membership renewal, please contact us by phone or e-mail We will happily send you the code once we’ve verified your membership status.
  • If the registrant wishes to cancel, notification must be made to Stuhr Museum 10 days prior to the class start date to receive a refund. Refunds given will be subject to a 10% administrative fee. Cancellations made less than 10 days prior to the first date of class are not eligible for refunds. No refund will be issued for days missed during class.
  • Students may not be dropped off more than 15 minutes prior to class and must be picked up no more than 15 minutes after the end of class each day.
  • A parking map will be provided to each vehicle on the first day of class. Your map serves as your pass into the museum for the duration of class. Please slow down and present pass to the Gate House Attendant any time you enter the grounds. If more than one vehicle will be dropping off or picking up your child during the week, additional passes may be picked up at the Gate House at no charge.
  • Please obey all stop signs, speed limits, and parking rules while dropping off or picking up your child.
  • Please use the specified parking lot for drop-off and pick-up. Your child’s teacher will meet the students there each day and bring them back to that location at the end of the day. Please do not stop along the road to drop students off or pick them up for the safety of your child and others.
Class Policies
  • Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for class. Some of our classes have specific dress codes, such as long pants or closed-toe shoes. Specific dress codes will be included in the reminder e-mail for each week of classes. All classes may include activities where children may get messy. Stuhr Museum is not liable for stains, rips, tears, etc. to clothing.
  • For classes without a specified dress code, we still recommend closed-toe shoes due to the outdoor nature of many classes. Students may encounter bugs and/or sunshine, so bug spray and sunscreen is recommended where appropriate.
  • If your child is sick or unable to attend class due to a conflict, please notify your child’s teacher or contact the Stuhr Museum Education Department by phone or e-mail to let us know of your child’s absence. Children must be free of fever and other symptoms for 24 hours before attending Summer Adventures classes. 
  • We encourage your child to bring a water bottle with them to aid in hydration. Filling stations will be available across the museum grounds. Please only send water to class with your child- no pop, juice, etc.
  • In the event of inclement weather, Stuhr Museum may choose to relocate or cancel classes for the safety of the students. Notification will be made as early as possible. If your child’s class is an outdoor class and it is raining, please stop at the Gate House to check where your child’s class has been relocated.
  • Stuhr Museum reserves the right to remove any disruptive child from a class. Parents will be notified and asked to pick up their child and discuss return the rest of the week. No refunds will be given in this event.
  • For classes that include a performance at the end of the week, two free admission passes for the performance will be provided to each student. Additional guests are welcome with paid daily admission. (Don’t forget – Stuhr Museum members always receive free daily admission!)
