The National Hellenic Museum offers thematic School Programs that cover various aspects of Greek history and culture. School Programs are for grades Pre-K-12 and include a guided tour and an art activity. School Programs are booked at $5 per student. Though these programs are designed with schools in mind, they can be booked for any group of children. There must be at least 10 children in the group to qualify for any of the group rates listed below.
All groups must also have 1 chaperone for every 10 children (1 for every 6 for groups of children 6 and under). Extra adults will be charged general admission.

NHM does not have public parking. There are several paid lots in the area or street parking.
NHM has no dining facilities. Groups of less than 60 children may eat bagged lunches in the classroom. Please let us know if you need a place to eat lunch when you book the program.
Visitors with disabilities
NHM can best accommodate visitors with disabilities when we know about them ahead of time.
