Specialized Programs

Self-Guided Group Tours

If you want to bring a group, but don't need a tour leader, please call in advance to schedule an unguided visit. Booking your unguided visit avoids conflicts with other groups and ensure a pleasant visit for all. Unguided groups will only be booked if there is sufficient room. There is no charge for unguided groups, but we encourage donations.
