Guided Tours

Please be sure to book your tour at least 2 weeks ahead of time. Because we often have more than one school tour each day, we ask your help in keeping us on schedule. Please arrive 15 minutes before your tour's scheduled time, and be aware that groups more than 15 minutes late are subject to cancellation. If your group is running late or has to cancel, please notify us as soon as possible.
