U-M classes


  • Please call our office at 734-764-0480 to reserve your time in the galleries. We request two weeks advance notice.
  • There is no charge for U-M classes, and by reserving your time you will avoid conflicts with other groups (imagine trying to talk over the voices of 100 first graders). Your reservation helps us keep track of the U-M courses we serve.
  • The museum is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and until 8:00 p.m. on Thursdays.
  • If your class meets when the museum is closed, we can arrange for after-hours access at no charge.
  • Let us know how the museum staff can help. We can provide staff-led programs prepared for your specific class needs.
  • The Museum of Natural History offers science communication training and presentation opportunities for undergraduates involved in research.  Ask us how we can serve your class or program. Contact Jade Marks at 734-647-1382 or jamarks@umich.edu.

Other U-M affiliated groups

  • U-M department faculty and staff groups, K-12 groups visiting with U-M departments, and U-M student groups visiting outside of class time are encouraged to arrange for visits, tours, and programs. Group fees apply to these visits. Please call our office to make your reservation at 734-764-0480 at least two to three weeks in advance.
