Bring Your Own Bag Lunch

Currently, we are not able to accept group visits of more than 50 guests and we are not offering guided tours for the foreseeable future. Please contact the Education Department team directly at +1 (607) 438-5401 or send an email to [email protected] for updates or questions related to scheduling a school visit.

Enjoy lunch at the Museum! Bring Your Own or Pre-Order lunch options are available. 

Please place all individual lunches in boxes or coolers clearly marked with the school name and the name of the teacher or group. We also suggest that individual lunches be marked with each child's name.

When you arrive at the Museum, please place your lunch boxes or coolers on the cart provided and our staff will deliver them to your lunch location.

Pre-Order Lunch

You may pre-order lunch from our Café. Final options must be confirmed two (2) weeks prior to your arrival date. The confirmed number may not be reduced on the day of the visit. The teacher or trip coordinator must pay for lunches upon arrival at the Admissions Desk.

Bag Lunch: $10.95–$14.95 + tax*
Many salad and sandwich options available. Please see the Bag Lunch Order Form or further details. All options come with chips and/or fruit, dessert, and a beverage.

Whole Pizza Special: $18.95–$21.95 + tax*
Pepperoni or cheese pizza (eight slices, serves four). Each pizza comes with four bottles of water.
Gourmet Pizzas available upon request, see Pizza Order Form for your choice of toppings.

*To avoid paying New York tax, bring your New York school district's tax-exempt form to us before your visit. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept out-of-state tax exempt forms.
