Tours of the exhibit are self-guided using digital Audio Guides, which are included in the price of admission. The audio guides are in English and Spanish (adjusted by the receptionist). The exhibit can take from 30 minutes to 2 hours to view. The information presented in the audio guide is layered and accessed simply by entering the number of each station. Group tours must be scheduled in advance. Pre-registered group tours may use either the audio guides exclusively, have their tour led by a volunteer docent, or arrange for a combination of the two. Please be advised that we cannot guarantee docents as they are volunteers. It will be assumed that all groups will use the audio guides, unless you contact Dr. Charlotte Decoster at firstname.lastname@example.org to request docents.
