Special Walking Tours and Museum Programming
As part of our education mission–to collect, preserve and explore the cultural, and related natural history of Jackson Hole and the Greater Yellowstone area through education, research, public programming and collaboration–we offer a variety of adult programming. Please let us know what your group’s specific interests are and we can align it to our programming. Our adult education programs include: Museum Visit and Docent Tour, Historic Downtown Walking Tour, Community Organization Visit, and Archaeology Field Excursions (during summer).
Pricing for education groups is based on desired program and amount of participants. If funding is any issue please mention in your request and we can try to find a way to accommodate your group or work with you on finding a grant. All programs work best for 20 or less participants but the museum is willing to work with special requests. Special programs require a minimum $50 fee regardless of group size.
