The Pacific Museum of Earth offers a variety of education programs ranging from guided tours of the museum to interactive Earth Science themed workshops. Our programs are available to small or large groups, families, social clubs, summer camps, and school groups of all ages. All information about booking an educational program at the PME can be found below.
Our rates depend on the size of your group and the number of programs booked.
The PME offers workshops and tours weekly on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday (5 time-slots each: 10:00am, 11:00am, 12:00pm, 1:00pm, 2:00pm). All workshops and tours begin on the hour.
Once you’ve completed our online booking form (please fill out ONLY one form per booking request), wait for a response from the Outreach Program Coordinator. Due to high volume of incoming requests, responses may require up to five days.
Once your booking is confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email and booking invoice from the Outreach Program Coordinator. All schedule changes made after this point will incur a $15 rescheduling fee. Please note your invoice number on cheques.
All booking cancellations must be made two weeks prior to your scheduled visit. Cancellations made within two weeks of a scheduled booking will incur a $30.00 cancellation fee, payable by cheque and mailed to the PME.
