Planning Your Visit
Our museum education program is offered weekdays from 10am-12pm between October and the winter break, and from March through the end of the school year. Please make sure students are dressed appropriately for the weather. Phone-in reservations begin August 1. An information packet will be sent prior to your visit.
After receiving your Teacher Information Packet, check the confirmation sheet to verify that all the information is correct. Notify Sully at 703-437-1794 if there are any changes in group sizes or cancellations.
Admission is collected when you arrive at Sully's Log Schoolhouse Gift Shop.
Teachers free. $6/student, $1/student discount for Fairfax County Schools ($5/student).
Payment methods accepted: cash, check, MasterCard or Visa. Checks should be made payable to F.C.P.A - Sully.
We request 1 adult per 10 children or 1-2 adults per center. We can accommodate up to two chaperones per center - cost $6/adult, $1/adult discount for Fairfax County school chaperones ($5/adult). Adults assist with maintaining order within the group and help with activities in the center. Please make sure that you have emergency info on the adults as well as the children. More adults may be needed for students with special needs. Please notify Sully if any students or groups have special needs so we can better prepare our teaching staff.
