Our guided school tours are led by a team of dedicated volunteers committed to providing meaningful learning experiences for our visitors. To support this, we have a strict maximum group size of 40 people per tour, per day. Our group ratio is set at 20 students (no more) per 1 docent and we require groups to have a minimum of 1 supervising adult for every 10 students. If you are interested in bringing a group larger than 40 to the park, please visit our Self-Guided Tour page for more information. All pre-scheduled school groups gain free entry into the park.

Cancellation policy: You must cancel 24 hours in advance to receive a refund. Tours canceled due to inclement weather are exempt from the policy and will be re-scheduled or refunded. You must cancel with the Museum office, as our docents will be ready to meet your group rain or shine.
School Tour Options:
Cottage & Beauty Ranch tours begin at 11 am or later and include the Museum and the Londons’ Cottage as well as a guided walk to the Pig Palace, Winery Ruins and Stone Barns. Due to limited space inside the Cottage only 10 people at a time may visit. Larger groups will need to divide and rotate through. Maximum group size for tour is 40 people.
Beauty Ranch only tours begin at 10 am or later and include the Museum, as well as a guided walk to the Pig Palace, Winery Ruins and Stone Barns. The Cottage is not included in this tour, making for a slightly shorter duration. Maximum group size for tour is 40 people.
Wolf House tours begin at 10 am or later and include the Museum as well as a half-mile walk to the Wolf House and the Grave Site. Maximum group size for tour is 40 people.
Please note: Groups visiting the Museum may send only 20 people at a time through. Please divide large groups into smaller sub-groups and rotate through.
The Park Orientation Video offers a 24-minute informational tour of the park and is a great way to prepare for your visit.
The Group Leader’s Guide is designed to be a helpful resource for educators and group leaders on their own and contains maps and information about the Park, as well as historical and cultural information.
