Additional Information:

Because the tour is outside, we recommend that our visitors prepare for weather appropriately by bringing umbrellas, sunscreen, and bug spray, as necessary. We also recommend comfortable walking shoes suitable for gravel pathways.

We operate tours rain or shine.

Important Information on Transportation: We understand that visitors come to our museum from a wide range of locations. Rideshare services (Uber, Lyft, etc.) are now in common use throughout the country. However, we want our visitors to be aware that while these services will pick up in the city and bring visitors to our site, many times they will not drive back out to pick riders up.
