The first tour will be given from 9 to 10:30 a.m. for adults and children 15 years or older. A second “child-friendly” tour will follow from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for residents with children age 6 years or older. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. All adults will be required to provide photo identification upon checking in.

Parking will be available in the facility’s gated parking lot. Please arrive at the facility 20 minutes before the tour start time, as the tours will start promptly at 9 and 11 a.m. Admittance will not be permitted once the tours have started.
