During the winter and early spring months (December – May), visits are welcome by advance appointment. Please email us for more information and to book your tour as early as possible to secure your date of choice. Please Note: These are tours that are scheduled upon request, outside of regularly scheduled offerings, which are available/visible on our events calendar. We offer two types of guided tours during the winter/early spring months: Regular Guided Tours and Custom Guided Tours:

Regular Guided Tour, 1 hour in length

Visitors are guided through the Main House and Old Studio by knowledgeable museum guides.

Rates: $120 for up to 3 people. Each additional person is $40/each. Admission to the grounds is always free of charge. Availability is limited, so please plan ahead.

Custom Guided Tour

Custom Tours are led by senior staff members. You may request for your tour to include specific areas depending on the interests of your group. Such topics might include the historic interior decoration and furnishings; a focus on a particular exhibition; or a behind the scenes look at the innovative Parlors installation. Availability of Custom Tours is limited, so please plan ahead.
