Group Tours


Tour Hyde House or Exhibitions

Choose to tour the historic house and former home of Museum founders Louis and Charlotte Hyde, one of our changing exhibitions, or both! Hyde House tours highlight the significant collection of European and American art displayed amongst Italian Renaissance and 18th century French antique furnishings.  

Our trained docents make tours both interesting and informative. Tours can be scheduled during museum hours, the last tour beginning at 2:30 pm.

Other things you will need to know:

  • Reservations for groups or motor coach tours are required.

  • The cost for group tours is $6 per person and requires a minimum of 12 people per group. Two complimentary tour admissions are provided for the driver and escort of motor coach tours.

  • Average tour time is one hour for Hyde House or a special exhibition, or 1.5 hours for two tours, but can be adapted to suit your time-frame. Leave time to visit the Museum grounds, including our Butterfly Garden, as well as The Museum Store.

  • Convenient bus parking

  • The Hyde Collection is a museum complex as well as an historic home and because of this, two rooms are not accessible by wheelchair or walker.

  • Our security policy does not allow any large bags, backpacks, diaper bags, etc. into the Museum. We suggest you leave these items on the bus. Once inside at the Admission Desk, our security guard will visually check any smaller bags and purses.
