Tour was great fun! Really made history come alive and excellent overview of museum holdings. Guide was fabulous...great pace and fun to be with! I’ll recommend to all my friends!!

We were a group of seven that were delayed in arriving. After we reached the customer service number to inform them that we were on the way, we were told they would be waiting for us. We were pleasantly received and the tour began. Katie was a fabulous tour guide and you could tell loved her work. We had a great experience!
