MoPOP celebrates pop culture’s ability to foster critical thinking, creativity, and innovation. We use our interactive exhibitions and hands-on activities to help your students make connections between popular music, storytelling, writing, movies, comics, and your classroom curriculum.

Eligible education groups qualify for a discounted general museum admission of $6.00 per person for K-12 groups or $10 per person for college/university groups. To qualify, reservations must be made by a teacher (K-12, homeschool, college/university, etc.), school administrator, or designated parent representative.

All education visits include an orientation and self-guided gallery access for the day. Enhance your visit by adding an in-museum workshop with a skilled and fun educator!

The following offerings for students K–12 will help students and teachers to extend their learning experience above and beyond the classroom walls.

Please note: Online educational group reservations are available seven days a week. School visits must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.

Education Department COVID-19 Policies

In order to protect the health and safety of our staff, guests, and community, MoPOP is limiting in-person educational programming and group visits until further notice.  Until we can all be together again, we are happy to support your museum experience in other ways!

  • Join us virtually or bring our outreach kit to you! We will not offer in-person programs for the remainder of 2021, but we encourage interested groups to explore our extensive Livestream Workshop options or inquire about bringing our Outreach Kit into your classroom, after school program, or other student space!
  • Small high school groups may visit the museum! We are currently accepting self-guided group reservations for small groups of no more than 30 guests.  All group members must be in grade 9 or above.
    • Group visits may be scheduled every hour on the hour.
    • Schools with groups larger than 30 or outside the high school age range may reach out to us at for potential exceptions or alternative arrangements.
    • All self-guided groups must attend a brief livestream orientation with education staff within 24 business hours of their visit. This orientation will cover general logistics about your visit, information about our on-site policies, and other helpful tips to make your experience as smooth as possible.
  • Additional health and safety policies are in place to protect all museum guests! Please review our current policies before finalizing your reservation.
