Guided tours are offered on the hour and half hour starting at 10:00 a.m. and the last departs at 3:30 p.m. Tours are free-of-charge and last approximately a half an hour. Should you prefer a self-guided option, please visit during one of our Open Houses from 12:00-1:00 and 4:00-5:00. Self-guided tours are not available, when guided tours are in progress. Tours are mostly offered first-come-first served. For groups of five or more, please call or email us to make a reservation.

The site will be closed from November 2019 through 2020 for Visitor Center renovations. The newly renovated Visitor Center will offer greater accessibility and make more efficient use of the space. Offsite programs, as they become available, will be listed on our website.
