Group Visits

Schedule a Group Tour


Please send in your group reservation form at least 48 hours in advance at a minimum, and we will try our best to accommodate your requested visit dates. Thank you for your flexibility.

In response to COVID-19, we have temporarily revised our hours for the health and safety of our visitors and staff to the following: Friday and Saturday from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM EST. Tours are still available for school and other groups during these times or by appointment. During this time we are only accepting visitors at half capacity and therefore cannot accept reservations for groups more than 50 people. Also as a friendly reminder, if you or anyone in your group is feeling unwell please stay home and visit the museum another time. 

CANDLES politely asks visitors not to bring backpacks and large handbags to the museum. All bags will be searched by museum security. No firearms, ammunition, knives, or other weapons are allowed. Thank you for helping to keep the museum safe for all visitors, employees, and volunteers.
