The Guided Tour
Guided tours for organized groups are offered Monday through Saturday. The average tour lasts about an hour and a half but can be customized to meet your schedule. Our daily, drop-in tours can accommodate groups smaller than ten people without advance notice. Guided group tours can number from 10-60. Reservations must be made at least one week in advance.
