Group Tour / Visit

We ask that all large groups call ahead prior to arrival. Groups that don’t need a tour guide can come and go at will. Groups needing a Guide(s) MUST be scheduled in advance. Groups can also schedule for the weekend – anticipate other guests may tag along with your tour on busier days.

Group Visits are to follow the same guidelines as School Tours for scheduling, arrival, discounts, and payment.

Birthday Parties / Special Events

Reserve the picnic area or the Conservatory for your birthday party or special event. Please call ahead for more information. Our conservatory rental is $50 for the use of the conservatory for 3 hours.
