Group visits without tour guide
Groups who wish to view the exhibits on their own are welcome to do so. Entrance is free. We appreciate it if you call or email ahead of time to let us know, so that we can avoid double booking with other groups. The building is old and small, and due to fire safety we can only have a limited number of groups at one time.
