Guidelines for a Guided Tour

“The museum educators were fabulous!” – Visitor

Guided ToursLate Arrivals

If your group will be arriving late, contact the museum immediately (717-691-6082, option 2).

We reserve the right to ask any disorderly group to leave the building. Under this circumstance, refunds will not be granted.

Cameras are welcome.   

Food, Drinks, Candy & Gum
Food, drinks, candy and gum are not allowed in the museum. 

Many groups choose to tour the museum and then eat a bagged lunch together.  The Larson Student Union, located right behind the Jordan Science Center, which has an outdoor eating area, can be used for lunch.  In case of inclement weather, an indoor eating area may be available. 

Lunch may be purchased at one of the college's eating venues depending on the time of year. 

Any lunch plans must be arranged when scheduling your visit.


If you have additional questions, contact us at 717-691-6082, option 2 or
