Please let Brittany know the following:

  • Roughly how many students and chaperones are coming.
  • Age/Grade level
  • A guided (or self guided depending on the age/grade level) of the museum and cabins are free. We do offer hands on activities for a fee (typically between $1-$2 per child). You can request a list of activities.

Self-guided tours of the museums and cabins are always free, but if your group is larger than 15 people, we would like to schedule a special time for you.

If you would like a special presentation, related to your groups educational goals, we need a four month notice to prepare.

Want to invite us to your educational event? Just email Brittany B. Joachim at with the date(s), theme, and any paper work required.
