Self-Guided Tours

SELF-GUIDED, self-paced groups of students are always welcome. We provide an environment for thoughtful questioning, where real works of art produced by the natural world and by the people who inhabit it are all you need to enjoy a meaningful educational experience. We'll send you a free pass to preview the exhibits so you can create a group visit of your design and focus. The possibilities are limitless.

*Special arrangements can be made for larger groups, and for groups that request longer visits.
