How to Book a Tour

All guided and self-guided groups must make advance reservations. To schedule your visit, please contact the Interpretive Programs Department at the Everhart Museum during regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm).

Reservations are made on a first-come, first served basis, and should be made at least two weeks in advance of your visit; allow five to six weeks if you are planning to visit from April to June. Please have several alternative dates and times in mind. We recommend you allow an additional half-hour if your group intends to visit the Gift Shop.

If you are unable to keep your appointment, please call the Interpretive Programs Department as soon as possible so that other groups on our waiting list can be contacted. Groups that do not show up for scheduled tours will be assessed a $25 fee.  See cancellation policy under “group tours” page.


Payment in full for all guided and self-guided visits is requested on the day of your visit and may be made by check, credit card, or cash upon check-in. Please give the cashier an exact count of all children and adults in your group no later than one week before your visit.  See cancellation policy under “group tours” page. Payment includes admission to the Museum for the rest of the day.

Self-Guided Tours

Teachers interested in taking their classes on individual self-guided tours of the Everhart Museum may do so during regular public hours (M, Th, Fri, 12:00 to 4:00 pm) and for regular admission ($3/student, $7/adult). Due to possible conflicts of time and space, self-guided tours are asked to follow the same reservation procedure as scheduling any other group visit. We also ask that there be at least one adult chaperon for every ten students.
