Guided Tours / Group Arrangements

    Guided tours are offered during regular museum hours, 10-12 p.m. on Saturdays and
    2-4 p.m. on Sundays and holidays from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Group tours should be arranged in advance. Whenever possible, they will be scheduled for the day and time requested. Tours normally take between an hour and an hour and a half. Except for students on tours and other visitors under 12, a donation of $3 per visitor is requested.
    The public is also welcome to use the research facilities of the museum, and when possible, the volunteer staff will assist those seeking information.
