Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 10 need to reserve ahead of time. The first hour is sitting and listening to Dennis talk he is very interesting to listen to.
Hello, we are visiting the area in a couple weeks. I have a three month old. Is this a tour I can do if I keep the baby strapped to me?

Hi, and thank you for your question! The first hour is a history lesson, second part is walking, you most certainly could carry your baby....people bring strollers too. Thank you!!

Do you have to take the tour? Or can you just enter with an admission price and tour yourself?
