Group tours of the musuem are available for groups up to 20. Tours are guided by knowledgeable, experienced and entertainig guides. We ask that you schedule group tours during hours when the museum is not open. There is no charge for group tours, but we would like two weeks notice to schedule your tour.


Keep in mind that there are several flights of stairs in the museum. If your group is physically unable to climb stairs, consider scheduling a program at your site.
