During our summer months, May through September, due to limited staff, volunteers, and extreme weather conditions, we are unable to offer guided tours of the archaeological site. Groups are still welcome to visit the museum and site during this time on a self-guided tour.


Outreaches - School and Public

The Museum Outreach programs and presentations are available for schools and organizations.  The outreach program is a way for museum representatives to come to you or your event for a fee.  Outreaches are booked on a first come first service basis and will only be granted if there is a representative available to do them.  To request an outreach please download the proper form and return it to the museum staff listed on the form.
