Book a Group Tour

 

Scheduling your Group

Reservations can be made up to one year in advance. It is recommended that you schedule your tour at least two weeks in advance of the arrival date if you would like a tour guide. Tour guide availability is limited and not available in all cases. Please contact us as soon as possible to determine if the desired day and time is available. Group tours are scheduled throughout the day, so please be prepared to provide several options of times that would work for your group tour. Private tours are not available on Saturdays. Plan between 1½ and 2 ½ hours for your visit.

Complete a group tour online inquiry form below for group tours and military groups.

For school groups, please visit the Plan a Field Trip page.

Guided Tours

The Museum is designed to be a self-guided experience. However, our knowledgeable museum guides add additional insight to your experience and are included for groups of 15 or more. Guides are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis and require at least one week of advance notice.

Cancellation Policy

Please notify us as soon as possible to cancel an existing reservation.

Payment

Payment can be made in advance or on the day of the visit. We accept credit cards, company checks and cash. The Museum does not provide direct billing or receive purchase orders for payment. Deposits are not required. We prefer groups to pay for admission with one credit card or check.

Upon Arrival

After payment has been made by the group leader, tickets/wristbands will be provided. If a tour guide was requested, the tour will begin on the glass bridge at the entrance to the Museum.

Parking

Buses may unload at the top of the u-shaped drive and park near the end of the u-shaped drive or on Kessler Road. There are parking lots on the south side of the Memorial for car parking. The main entrance is down the short walkway and through the bronze doors, and ticketing is to the left after you enter.
