How to Register
A limited number of students will be admitted each day. Special discounted admission fees are available ONLY for school groups from September through June and only with a reservation.
Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis. We allow a maximum number of students and chaperones to book a reservation each day. Once that maximum number is reached, the day is closed to additional reservations.
School Admission Rates are available only to schools registered with the California Department of Education. In addition, the field trip must be scheduled as part of a regular academic school program.
Call (323) 644-4211, 8:30 am to 4 pm Mondays through Fridays to speak directly to a reservations coordinator.
Watch for your confirmation materials in the mail. If you do not
receive them within three weeks of making your reservation, please
call (323) 644-4211.
For the hearing impaired, please call our TDD line at (323) 913-4763.
