The Museum will be open on Juneteenth, Wednesday, June 19, and on Independence Day, Thursday, July 4.

Today’s Hours: Closed

Self-Guided Groups

Price: $6.00 per student. For every 5 students, 1 chaperone is admitted free. Additional chaperones are $9.00 per person.

For groups with limited time or who would rather walk around on their own, another option would be to schedule a self-guided walking tour. Group rates are available. Optional scavenger hunt sheets are also available upon request.
