The Georgia Southern Museum offers year-round group tours
for public, private, and homeschool groups of all ages and must be scheduled in advance. Each program is a hands-on, interactive exploration that makes use of resources available at the Museum and at Georgia Southern University. We correlate all our programs to the Georgia Performance Standards
and provide complementary teaching materials for classroom use.
Homeschool Groups: Homeschool families are encouraged to visit the museum informally at any time. Groups of homeschool students and homeschool associations may schedule educational tours in the same way that public and private school teachers make group reservations. Programs may be modified to accommodate a broader span of age/learning levels within a homeschool group.
||We can accommodate up to 6 classes or about 120 students in a single visit by combining programs or working with other facilities at Georgia Southern.
||The Museum’s individual programs run approximately 30 minutes.
||To help defray costs, a nominal program/materials fee is charged for all reserved groups EXCEPT Georgia Southern University classes and Georgia Southern University Family Life Center groups. During the school year (dates vary slightly each year) the fee is $2.00 per person, and during the summer months the fee is $5.00 per person. If a group is combining Museum programs, there is only the one-time charge of either $2.00 per person or $5.00 per person, depending upon the time of year.

Additionally, the GSU Recreation Activity Center (RAC) has an all-weather picnic pavilion available at no charge to school groups through the Campus Recreation and Intramurals department and it is located on Old Register Road, about a mile from the Museum. The facility includes bathrooms and covered picnic tables. You must make reservations well in advance by contacting their facilities coordinator directly at (912) 478-5436. Tell them you are visiting the Museum to avoid being charged. A reservation is required to use the pavilion and can be submitted online via the Campus Recreation and Intramurals (CRI) website at www.georgiasouthern.edu/cri and select their “Facility Reservations” CRI Quick Link. Complete their online “External Reservation Request” form.
