House Tours are available on a drop-in basis. As the Museum is located in a 1890s house with a number of small rooms, we ask that groups interested in taking a tour contact us in advance to better accommodate all visitors. The standard house tour runs 20-30 minutes.
Children must be accompanied by adults.
The ground floor of the house is physically accessible. Given the size of the rooms and passageways, space allows for 3 visitors with wheelchairs or walkers to safely tour at the same time.
