Groups visits are intended to be self-guided; private or guided tours are not available. However, on weekday mornings during the school year, the Library's Department of Education and Public Programs offers a variety of structured programs for elementary, middle and high school classes visiting the museum. All group visits or educational programs must be scheduled in advance.
