Your group of kids or campers will have a dino-mite experience at the Academy of Natural Sciences this summer! Bring your group of 10 to 100 children for an all-inclusive day of fun featuring:

  • A visit to our interactive special exhibit, Life Onto Land: The Devonian (November 11, 2023-September 29, 2024) and Under The Canopy: Animals of the Rainforest (Opening February 17–September 2, 2024)
  • A walk among dinosaurs and other prehistoric wonders
  • And so much more!

Pricing starts at $16.00 per adult and $14.00 per child.

One adult chaperone (age 18+) is required per ten children and receives complimentary admission

At this time, masks are optional for all guests over the age of 2, but are strongly recommended within the Outside-In exhibit.

Why Choose the Academy for Your Group?

At Philadelphia’s Natural Science museum, you can experience hands-on science and beat the heat! With our convenient location in the heart of Philadelphia’s museum district, we make it possible for you to visit more than one museum in a day.

Space in the Academy's lunch room is limited and must be requested at the time of booking. There are also many beautiful places nearby where you can eat outdoors! We recommend Sister Cities' park, just across the street between Logan Square and the Basilica.
