FAQs:

  • Please note that we are able to accommodate vegetarians but no other dietary needs, though we will keep a peanut-free kitchen.
  • As this is a fundraiser, tickets for the tea are non-refundable, though they may be transferred to other people.
  • As this ticket includes General Admission, guests can arrive at the Museum at any time after it opens at 10 AM and gain entry by presenting proof of purchase at Admissions. We ask that all guests assemble by the Admissions Desk approximately 10 minutes before their scheduled seating.
  • Tea service is being held in the Officers' Wardroom on the 2nd Deck and guests will need to navigate one ladder down. For Accessibility information, please see our Accessibility page.
