Reservations
Interested in reserving a Traveling Program? Be sure to book early as programs and dates can fill up quickly. You may:

Pricing

  • $140 per presentation (*NB: $165 per presentation for Mirror Magic & What's the Scoop reflects materials cost)
  • An additional $1 per mile travel fee will be charged, based on your round-trip distance from the Museum at 250 Jordan Road, Troy, NY.
  • Two weeks notice is required for both reschedule and cancellation requests. If you fail to provide us with two weeks notice, you will be billed the full amount.
  • In the case of inclement weather we will reschedule your program at a mutually agreed upon date.

Timing

  • PreK programs are 45 minutes in duration
  • K-5 programs are 60 minutes in duration unless specifically noted
  • 6-8 programs are 40 minutes in duration to align to middle-school class schedules

Please note:  Scheduling more than one presentation of a program per day increases cost effectiveness. Successive presentations of the same program should stay in the same room, and allow 15 minutes between each program for museum teacher preparation and set up.

BOCES: CMOST programs are available as a BOCES Arts-in-Education service. Please inquire about your school’s eligibility for BOCES aid.

Group Size: In-School programs accommodate up to 30 participants. To maintain our current program fees and ensure that all students receive a quality experience, the museum must limit group size to 30 students. Exceptions will not be permitted.

Learning Standards & the Common Core Our Traveling Programs support the NYS P-12 Learning Standards and the Common Core by encouraging critical thinking and inquiry-based learning, which leads to a deeper understanding for the students. Our approach in working with the Common Core is to encourage understanding, versus just knowing. As a teacher, you can count on a quality program from CMOST enriched with requirements by the Common Core, for a fun, hands-on learning experience. We continue to identify alignments for the various Standards and EngageNY modules for each of our programs. We value your input as educators and want to know what you need, when you schedule presentations. Please inform us of any specific standards/modules you are attempting to meet, and we will do our best to help you find a match.
