Group Visits & Field Trips
Smith is a wonderful site for your next field trip. Children ages 10 and younger may play in the Playground, and children ages 5 and younger may play in the Playhouse.
Reservations are REQUIRED for groups of 8 or more children. The cost for a field trip is $25 for up to 25 children, $50 for 26-50 children, and $100 for 51-100 children. Groups include daycare centers, pre-schools, head start classes, elementary schools and informal parents groups. Groups who arrive without a prior reservation will be charged an additional walk-in fee of $25 if the time-slot is not already full. Smith requires one chaperone (age 18 or over) for every 5 children. Please remember that we have age restrictions for children visiting Smith, and all children in the group should be 10 and younger. To protect the safety of all visitors, these age restrictions are strictly enforced by Smith staff.
You must make a reservation at least two weeks in advance of your trip date. Keep in mind that field trip slots fill up quickly, and we recommend making reservations two to three months in advance to secure your preferred date. Reservations can be made online or by calling 215-765-4325 x100.
Groups may visit the Playground (April-October) and Playhouse (year-round) Wednesday through Friday from either 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM or 1:00 to 3:00 PM.
PLEASE NOTE: Group reservations made offline are not scheduled until you receive a confirmation from us.
