Event Description:

Come ask questions about maps in our collection while on a guided tour. Tour should last about an hour and are welcome to stay after.

In the Museum’s permanent exhibition are maps ranging from a copy of the 1472 “T-O” Map by Isadore of Seville, generally considered to be the first printed map, to a delightful colored 1958 Tourist Map of Southern California with the charming name of “Roads to Romance."

The Museum’s main hall is divided into sections that show maps categorized by Exploration, Colonization, California as an Island and Sea Charts. There are also galleries set aside for maps of Europe, Celestial, Holy Land, Africa and Asia. Display cases in both the main hall and galleries contain many rare atlases by Blaeu, Ortelius, De Wit and others. Here too can be found work by Father Kino, Benjamin Franklin, a beautiful edition of the “Nuremberg Chronicles” and colorful Gold Rush Map by William Jackson.

How do I specify how I am paying for our spaces?

Please read all the info about this field trip, take the time now to add this event or field trip to your family calendar, please follow all the prompts when registering and be sure to enter all requested information.

1) Before you proceed to register for this event or field trip, please decide how many spaces you will be reserving using Charter School Instructional Funds and/or the number of spaces you need to pay for out of pocket.

2) You will click the green "Register" button in the upper right of the event posting. This will open the registration window.

3) You will then use the arrow button on the right side of each registration option to select how you will be paying for the spaces you need. Please select the number of registrations you need to pay for out of pocket and/or the ones you need to pay for using Charter School Student Instructional Funding.

If you are requesting to use Charter School Student Instructional Funding, please note that this does not indicate the order is free. Your Student's Instructional Funding account will be reviewed for available balance and funds will be withdrawn based on your order request.

4) Any non-charter enrolled children planning to attend with you must pay out of pocket for their space. PayPal invoices will be sent to families who mistakenly registered using Charter School Instructional Funds if it is found that the student/child is not currently enrolled, does not have sufficient funds or if they have signed up more adult/chaperones than allowed by their enrolled charter school.

All of the charter students and allowable charter chaperones you are reserving registrations for will be deducted from your total. This process will allow you to pay for any self-pay out of pocket registrations, in one transaction using your credit card through Eventbrite.
