The Non-Refundable Deposit, if required, is due at the time Client signs this Agreement to reserve the date and time of the Event. The remaining balance, including any additional costs resulting from agreed-upon changes to the reservation, is due on the day of the visit. If the parties agree to any changes to the reservation that result in a change to the Cost, they will agree in writing to such changes and any resulting costs.  If a change is made less than two (2) business days prior to the Event, any such costs will be due immediately.

2. Available Spaces

The Museum does not have lunch space available. Upon prior request, it may be possible to use one of the Museum’s areas to deposit backpacks and lunches during the visit. However, availability is not guaranteed. The Museum cannot be held liable for any missing or broken personal items left in those spaces.

3. Public Health Control Measures

If federal, state, or local public health control measures are in effect at the time of, and apply to, the visit, Client and its guests must comply with all such measures at Client’s sole expense.  Without relieving Client of such duty, Museum is permitted to undertake whatever actions it deems necessary, in its sole discretion, to comply with such public health control measures, including without limitation by promulgating facility rules applicable to the Event which Client and Client’s guests must follow. Client understands and agrees that Client is responsible for identifying and implementing any public health control measures which apply to the visit or visitors. Museum may, but is not obligated to, inform Client of applicable public health control measures of which Museum is aware.  Examples of public health control measures that may affect the visit include but are not limited to mandatory social distancing between groups of attendees, required spacing between tables or other seating, mandatory use of cloth face coverings or masks by attendees, and limits on the number of participants.  Museum may condition the admission of Client and its guests to the Museum on the execution by each entrant of an acknowledgement of such public health control measures and release of liability acceptable to Museum.

4. Cancellations

The Museum may cancel the visit and terminate this Agreement at any time up to 7 days before the visit by providing Client with notice of the cancellation.  In such case, the Museum shall reimburse to the Client any and all amounts previously paid by the Client to the Museum as payment for the visit, less any actual expenses incurred by Museum in connection with the reservation.  Client may cancel the reservation and terminate this Agreement by providing prior written notice to the Museum at the address provided above, Attn. Education Director. Cancellation notices received by the Museum more than fourteen (14) days prior to the visit will not result in any charges for the reservation, and the Museum shall reimburse to the Client any and all amounts previously paid by the Client to the Museum as payment for the Event, less any actual expenses incurred by Museum in connection with the reservation ($50 non-refundable deposit).  Cancellation notices received less than fourteen (14) days prior to the reservation will result in a charge in the amount of fifty percent (50%) of the estimated cost.  The Museum will invoice Client for any cancellation charges provided for in this Section 6, and Client agrees to remit payment to the Museum for such charges within thirty (30) days of receipt of said invoice.  In the event that amounts previously paid by the Client to the Museum for the reservation exceed the cancellation charges set forth in this Section 3, the Museum shall reimburse to the Client the amount of such excess.
