Group Visits


Plan your day full of learning &
excitement COME PLAY WITH US.

GCE aims to become a leading destination for memorable field trips and outside the classroom learning. We welcome visiting groups from schools, afterschool programmes, ladies groups, clubs, childcare centers, colleges, and corporations to roll up their sleeves, learn together, and interact with our world class exhibits and staff. We support learning by providing real objects and direct experience that encourage imagination, curiosity, and questioning. Our environment is informal, but our purpose is serious!

Visiting groups are a very important part of our audience, and hence we offer reduced admission fees. To ensure everyone’s visit to the museum runs smoothly, groups must comply with our policies listed below:

  • Your group must contain a minimum of 15 or more paying visitors.
  • Reservation should be made at least 2 weeks in advance of the day of the visit.
  • Upon arrival at the Explorium on the day of the visit, all members of the group must enter at the same time.
  • Please note: those who arrive after the group has entered the Explorium must pay the regular admission price for children and adults.
  • The group must make payment at least 2 weeks in advance to the admission desk at the Explorium.
