We are currently accepting reservations for virtual and in-person school tours. Please note that we experience our highest demand between January and May, so we kindly request that you schedule your group's tour as soon as possible.
All education programs are aligned with the California Content Standards for English-Language Arts and History-Social Science. Student tours are customized per class and available for students in 5th grade and up. Our staff tailors each tour to meet the educational needs of your students.
