The Wilbur D. May Collection: Year-Round

We offer a one-hour tour through the amazing collection of Wilbur D. May. Our visitors begin with a short introduction and film about the life of Mr. May and the items housed in the museum, followed by a guided walk through the museum itself. We offer a scavenger hunt that is a fun way to learn more about the collection and to test people's detective skills! The tour combines local and world history along with natural history and is appropriate for all ages.

Tours are available most times during normal business hours, by appointment only.

Group Rates (15+ people):

Youth (3-17) & Seniors (62+) - $4.00
Adults - $6.00
