Self-Guided Tours

Self-guided tours are our most popular offering. Although we call them self-guided, our staff are stationed throughout the grounds ready to direct activities, answer questions and help immerse your students in the past. During your self-guided tour, explore at your own pace and visit the areas that meet your field trip goals. Each visit covers a variety of Indiana academic standards including social studies, language arts and science. Best of all, we subsidize every student's visit so you can get the most out of your limited field trip dollars. Advance reservations are required.
