We are excited about your visit!


We invite you to experience your self-guided tour anytime during our regular hours, which vary by season.**PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR CURRENT HOURS.** On average, visitors spend approximately an hour and a half on self-guided tours exploring our permanent exhibits, longer when a touring show is on display.  Our "History Hunt"  encourages visitors to locate answers that can be found in the exhibits.  You are welcome to stay as long as you like! Staff and/or volunteers are always available to answer questions or assist during your visit.
