Students must be accompanied by a chaperone at all times. Chaperones must be 21 or older and must stay with the students. They should help students get the most out of the field trip by assisting in activities, encouraging good behavior, and handling any discipline problems.

One chaperone is required for every 15 students for in-depth workshops.

Minimum group size: 12 students
Maximum group size for self-guided field trips is 60 students. The maximum size for workshops is 35 students per class. The maximum for a workshop plus a self-guided field trip is 60 students.
Students are expected to participate fully in the activities and be respectful of themselves, other students and museum visitors, The Leonardo staff, exhibits, and property. Teachers and chaperones are responsible for encouraging good behavior and taking care of any discipline problems. The Leonardo reserves the right to ask misbehaving students to leave and a chaperone must supervise them on the bus or arrange for transportation home.
Please inform us of any special needs when scheduling your field trip. If you have any students with severe disabilities, plan to bring a dedicated chaperone to assist them in the activities. This chaperone will not count toward the chaperone ratio mentioned above.
The Leonardo has limited space for lunch for those groups participating in a workshop. you must request it when scheduling your field trip. Schools must bring their own lunches and make the request in your original booking.
Photos may be taken during your field trip to be used for evaluation or marketing purposes. If there are any students in the group who have a legal reason not to have their photo taken, please inform the lead facilitator when your group arrives. Otherwise, by participating in a field trip, all participants give permission for their photos to be used by The Leonardo. We will inform you if your field trip can expect to have their photos taken. No photography is permitted in the Mummies of the World exhibit.
