Group Tours

Due to the museum's size, we will not be able to accommodate large groups as it would not be possible to maintain the proper distance in some areas of the museum. Our recommendation would be small families or individuals of 3 or 4 persons, with a 10 person maximum in the museum. Guests and small groups have to make reservations before visiting the museum. Per Hamilton County and CDC regulations, the docent at the desk will ask for all guest's names and phone numbers before they are allowed in the museum for potential contact tracing.

Please call in advance if you have any questions. Thank you for your cooperation. We look forward to your visit.
