Groups can come and tour the museum and grounds with a volunteer docent, who will lead them on an inspirational journey that can be connected to almost any academic field or interest. After the tour, group leaders are welcome to use the grounds as a classroom to discuss and engage with the new ideas visitors have gained throughout the tour.
