We will do our best to tailor your visit to suit your needs and desires. A complete visit will take approximately 1 ½ hours. If teachers choose to add demonstrations and/or the Behind the Big House Program, additional time is necessary. See the Educational Activities list for details. The site can accommodate groups of up to 80 people. Large groups will be divided into smaller units for rotation through the program.
