The Appleton offers a variety of custom group tours, either self guided or led by a docent. Book your group tour in advance to receive special group rates and bypass admission lines.
Guided tours are conducted by a trained docent or staff member and last approximately one hour. The Museum Collections tour introduces visitors to some of the treasures in the permanent collection. You are encouraged to visit the online collections or review current and upcoming exhibitions for other possible tour topics.
We encourage group visits from museum and tourism professionals, meeting planners, organizers of trade shows and representatives of hotels, airlines and tour companies.
