This exhibit is suitable for middle school, high school and adults. Docent led tours can be scheduled (click here). There will also be walk-in tours available on weekends. (see library hours below). All tours will be led by professionally trained docents. We recommend teachers allowing 2 hours to view the complete exhibit as often students will have questions.
For your safety and ours, we request that when you enter the exhibit panel area, all people–adults and students–wear masks. If you don’t have one, we will gladly supply one for you.
