A few notes on group visits:

  • One chaperone is required for every 15 high school students on a group tour
  • Group tours must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance of the desired date

Due to the high volume of requests, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate all group tour requests. We do not provide group visits to elementary or middle school students.
