Large Groups and Bus Tours

Scheduling Large Group & Commercial Bus Tours

Commercial bus tours wishing to schedule reserved, special tours must call ahead for reservations at (603) 675-2175, FAX 603 675-2701, or email saga_interpretation@nps.gov

Large Groups, 12 people or more, may reserve a tour for the same cost, or call ahead to alert the park and inquire about the availability of guided tour that day.

Cost: For 2017, the entrance fee is $10. per person age 16 and over (children are free).
An additional interpretive fee of $1.00 per person will be charged for special group tours, minimum of 10 people.

Payment is due the day of the visit and is payable in cash, credit card, or check made out to “National Park Service.” No advance deposit is required

Guided Tours:
A general tour of the site lasts about 55 minutes, and covers the two exhibition galleries and the four full-size bonze casts on the grounds, of Saint-Gaudens’ most famous monuments There are benches throughout the park for people who may need a rest, but Aspet and the Formal Garden are not wheelchair accessible. The walking tour goes in and out of buildings so people should bring coats and rain gear if needed.

Three new, focused tous would also be available in the 2017 season. These would each last about 45 minutes.
● Saint-Gauden's Civil War Monmemts
● The Women of Saint-Gaudens' World
● The Process of Sculpture

The house, Aspet, is not included with tours and is not the main focus of the site. Four rooms are open to the public. Because of the constricted space, only 12 people can be allowed in at one time. If logistics and time allow, we do try and give bus groups a quick walk-through.

Accessibility:
Certain buildings and areas of the park are, unfortunately, not wheelchair accessible, including Aspet and the Formal Garden. The introductory film is open captioned, and audio description for the film is available. Please call the park for specific questions about accessibility.

Time needed: A suggested visit time is one and a half to two hours. Well behaved dogs on leashes are welcome on the grounds, but not inside the buildings (except for service dogs).

Food
There are no food services available at the park. The Visitor Center has a drinking fountain and water bottle filling station. If people have box lunches, there are several picnic tables and benches around the grounds, but there are no covered picnic areas available in the event of rain.

Museum Shop: We have a small, Easter National bookstore and gift shop. Postcards, books, National Park Service passport stamps, park-related souvenirs and other items, are available there.

We look forward to sharing this special place with you.
