For groups larger than 10, the Museum provides docents to guide them through the exhibits. The Museum can accommodate up to 120 guests at one time. To schedule a tour of the Museum please fill out a Group Tour Reservation Form at least three weeks prior to the desired date. Keep the following in mind:

  • The Museum requests that large groups divide into smaller groups of 30 or fewer before arriving to the Museum.
  • Due to the graphic nature of the exhibits, tours are not scheduled for groups younger than 6th grade.
  • Bus parking is available in the Museum's secondary parking lot.
  • Docent-guided tours last approximately two hours
  • There is space onsite for groups to eat, however the Museum must be notified in advance of a group's intent to use the space.
    Groups are responsible for bringing their own meals, as there is no food for purchase at the Museum.
