The American Writers Museum welcomes group tours of many types, including field trips booked through Tour Operators. Group tours must be booked in advance, and the group rate does not apply to walk-in groups. See below for more information (in case of visitors with special needs, please inform us in advance). Please note that no outside food or drinks are allowed in the museum. We partner with Food For Thought to provide exclusive catering at the Museum.

Group rates are available for programs as well. View our upcoming programs here.

For student and school groups for grades K-12 being booked by a school administrator, please refer to the Field Trips information page.
