Request a Guided Tour


Explore the museum on your own, by taking a professionally guided tour of our current exhibition or go behind the scenes into our collection storage. Tours can be tailored to a variety of interests and cover a wide range of topics. Tours are free of charge but online donations are always welcome! For non-campus community organizations and groups, we greatly appreciate a donation of at least $5 per visitor on arrival. 

To reserve a time for a guided tour, complete this form and a museum staff member will contact you. Indicate in the comment box if there will be more than 30 people in your tour group. If you are trying to request a tour within 7 days, call the museum (815-753-2011). For press visitation and media inquiries, please contact Jennifer Kirker directly at or 815-753-0230.
