Although you can purchase tickets in person for the day of the event, purchasing them online reserves your seat and may save you time. A $3 processing fee is charged per transaction for this service. Advanced individual tickets are sold online only and must be purchased by 11:00 p.m. the night before your scheduled visit. During summer and school holidays, lines may become long throughout the day, so we recommend you arrive early to increase your chance of purchasing a tram ticket. Groups of 20 or more may call in advance for reservations.

For pricing and group reservations, call toll free at (voice) 1-877-982-1410 (Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. CST).

Free ranger-led tours are given on a regular schedule, with times and subjects of tours posted each day at the entrance to the Museum and the Old Courthouse. Tours usually last 45 minutes. Arrangements for ranger-led tours can be made in advance by calling (voice) 314-655-1700.
