Tours are free and available by reservation only. We require a minimum of 10, and a maximum of 60 visitors per tour. Groups that do not meet these requirements may be subject to tour cancellation.
Museum tours are offered Monday through Friday with two concurrent tours beginning at 9:30, 10:15, 11:00, 12:00, 12:45, and 1:30.
Tours of the museum north wing are 45 minutes long followed by an optional 30 minute legislative tour of either the State Senate or House of Representatives. Legislative tours are not available following the 12:45 pm or 1:30 pm museum tours.
Educators, please refer to the Educator Resources page for more on school tours.
Where do we begin?
Please gather your group outside of the museum. A guide will meet your group and complete a quick orientation before entering the building.
What if we are late?
If your group arrives late to your scheduled tour time, your tour will be shortened and finish at originally designated time. Groups more than thirty minutes late will be canceled and may enter the museum for a self-guided visit of north wing exhibits.
What can we do while waiting for our tour time?
Visitors are welcome to explore the Wesley Bolin Plaza across the street, check out exhibits in the museum south wing, and visit the Museum Store.
What are we allowed to bring?
Flash photography, food and drink are not permitted within the museum. Groups are encouraged to leave personal belongings and food on the bus. Lunches, water bottles, and backpacks can be stored behind the museum information desk but museum staff will not be responsible for monitoring these items.
Where can we eat our lunch?
Tour groups are encouraged to enjoy lunch and explore memorials in the Wesley Bolin Plaza in front of the Capitol Complex.
