Tips for a wonderful visit to the Museum
Become familiar with the Norton: review your trip details and all documents with staff and campers prior to your visit.
For the best experience: Divide classes into groups of approximately 10 students and one chaperone. Organizing your groups by age will also be helpful. Arrange your groups BEFORE arrival to ensure your tour starts on time.
Share ideas: While the primary role of chaperones is to manage behavior and keep groups together, we encourage adults to share ideas and ask questions. Your interest will motivate the campers.
Strictly follow these Museum Guidelines: Do not touch any artwork. For your safety and that of the artwork, keep an arm’s length away from all works of art at all times. Do not bring food or drink in the galleries. Leave backpacks and large bags on the bus.
Camper Drop-off/Bus Parking
Please direct your bus driver to the bus parking zone on Jefferson Road at the north end of the
Museum. Once your group has assembled on the street sidewalk, head east along Jefferson
Road to S. Olive. Turn right (south) on Olive to the original, 1941 entrance to the museum.
After dropping off your group on Jefferson Road, if the bus parking zone is full, additional
parking is in the free Museum parking lot across the street from the Museum at 1501 South
Dixie Highway. Be sure to notify bus driver of your tour departure time from Museum.
