Group Tours

Group tours are provided for groups of 10 to 60 people with advance reservation. Docents may be available to share the content with learners of all ages in fun and interesting ways. Group Tours for all Oregon public school groups are free thanks to the 2019 Oregon State Legislative Assembly’s generous financial support of the Oregon Historical Society. Bus assistance may also be available. Group Tours are 60 minutes per exhibit and meet state and national standards.

To schedule a tour, please download, save, and fill out the appropriate Tour Request Form. (There is one form for School Tours and another for Adult Tours.) Then email it at least 2 weeks prior to your tour to:

We look forward to working with you and expect to respond to your email within 2 to 5 business days.
