Museum Tours & Rentals
Scheduled tours are consistently offered at the Museum and are tailored to the age group and focus of the patrons participating. The tour lasts about 45 minutes to an hour, traveling through the entirety of the Museum, detailing the history of the building as well as the exhibits on display. Tours given during regular Museum hours (Wednesday-Saturday from 9a-5p) are free of charge, but must be scheduled in advance. For school groups, Museum staff can provide scavenger hunts or other activities, and will work with educators to develop a Museum visit that highlights classroom topics.
