Group Tours

Group tours of the museum’s historic houses are available daily with advanced reservations. You need a minimum of 10 people to reserve a tour and we can accommodate up to 75 people at a time. We suggest you make reservations 3 to 4 weeks in advance by calling (626) 968-8492 or sending an e-mail to

The museum has plenty of free parking and a bus zone for easy pick up and drop off.  Groups can arrange to reserve our picnic area free of charge when making their reservation. The picnic area contains 8 tables that can accommodate up to 60 adults or 74 children.

Tour routes are modified based on the comfort and needs of individual tour groups. Most of the site is wheelchair accessible, and we provide some seating within the historic houses. On average, tours of both houses last 90 minutes, but shorter tours can be accommodated, as well.

The museum offers a group tour for visitors with cognitive impairments called California Living. There is no minimum size requirement for this tour that visits select spaces within the historic homes. Up to 30 people can be accommodated at a time and seating is provided for all participants.

We offer a variety of youth and school programs. Learn more here.
