Tours of the public rooms are available to school groups and non-profit groups and must be booked at least four weeks in advance.

Public tours are scheduled one Saturday a month, starting promptly at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. Tours are one hour in length. Admission is free and no booking is required. Please note that we have a maximum capacity of 100 people per tour so spaces will be allotted on a first come first serve basis.
