Behind The Scenes Tours

A series of themed, behind the scenes tours to help you get a glimpse at our collections vaults.

  • Museum & Science Center
  • 2024 Series


Like many museums, the majority of our collections are not on public display. As the steward of over 1.2 million objects, there are a lot of unique, interesting, and just plain odd objects within our collections vaults— and this is your chance to get a look at some of them! 

We’re offering annual themed tours of our collections vaults. Each tour date, attendees can choose from one or more themes that interest them the most.

Each tour is led by one of our expert collections staff members and includes:

  • A brief, guided tour through a public exhibit
  • A tour through one of our eight collections vaults
  • A final Q & A session with our collections staff

Tours are for adult audiences (18+). 

Please arrive promptly, as all tours will leave the lobby right at 6pm.
