We offer tours to groups other than just schools! Whether you are a group leader for Guides, Brownies, Sparks, Scouts, Beavers, Cubs, or another club, we can serve you! Although our museum hours are 8:30 AM- 4:30 PM on weekdays, we are able to accommodate clubs and groups that meet outside of these hours.
If we did not mention you in our bracket of defining a club or group, please contact us to see what we can offer you! Whether you are a corporate group or simply a gathering of people hoping to learn more, we can offer you a tour!
