Tours

Make the most of your Museum visit and schedule a Docent Guide Tour.

During a docent-guided tour, volunteer educators engage visitors in active viewing and discussion of topics relating to the Museum’s exhibits and maritime history.

Reservations for docent guided tours must be made at least two weeks in advance of your planned visit. Tours typically require 45 minutes but can be adapted to fit the needs of the group.

Schedule your visit in three simple steps:

  1. Complete the Group Registration Form.
  2. Submit completed form.
  3. Watch for your email confirmation.

(If you do not receive email confirmation within a week of making your reservation, please contact the Education Department.)
