Adult Tours must be booked at least four weeks in advance as our tour schedule fills rapidly and ample time is needed to schedule docent volunteers. Before scheduling a tour please read all the guidelines and tour program offerings first. To schedule please fill out the on-line adult tour request form by clicking here.

Adult Admission/Tour Fees - Docent-led tours are $12 per person. This fee includes your admission and docent-led tour fee. Free passes, membership, and library passes are NOT valid for docent-led tours.

Docent-led & Self-guided Tours - Tours are offered Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Adult groups of up to 50 people can be accommodated at one time. Self-guided groups of more than 8 people are requested to still schedule their visit by filling out the tour form and may only visit during normal public hours.

Lunch options and packages - The Museum’s restaurant Café on the Park serves lunch Tuesday through Sunday. Tour groups of up to 15 people may visit the Café on their own. Groups of more than 15 people may select a boxed lunch option or a private catered event - additional fees apply. Please request current menu and fees from Group Tour Coordinator. No food is allowed to be brought into the Museum. Cafe and cafe terrace seating are for cafe customers only.

Checking-in – Groups will only be allowed to enter the Museum 15 minutes prior to tour start time and the Group Leader must first check-in at the front desk with one payment for the entire group (individual payments are not allowed and groups will not be checked-in until one payment is received, failing to do so may result in lost tour time). For curbside delivery, turn left into the Museum’s parking lot. Buses should drop visitors off at the sidewalk. The handicapped access is the paved ramp to the left of the entrance and is accessed by the Museum parking lot.

Accessibility - The museum is handicapped accessible. A ramp is located to the right of the Museum parking lot leading to the front door. All public levels of the Museum are accessible by elevators. The museum is conveniently located from Interstate 84 (exit 35 to route 72) or Interstate 91 (22N route 9 to 72). Highway signs provide directions from route 72. There is ample on-street parking for busses nearby.
