Live virtual tours for your group are available over Zoom or the online platform of your choice. Tours are $5 per person with a $20 tour guide fee or simply $100 for groups of 20 or more. You’ll be able to interact with our knowledgeable tour guides and even make special requests with what objects or subjects you’d most like to see!

School Virtual Workshops

Virtual workshops are available for students 7-14 years old. Participants will follow along step by step with our instructor, professional magician John Dudley, as he shows them how to perform magic with things you can find at home. In addition, students will get to examine some neat magic artifacts at the museum and engage in a Q&A session with our museum director.
