Guided museum tours
The Berks History Center is delighted to offer guided tours of our museum to students of all ages, including those in elementary, middle and high school, as well as college students. Home-schooled children and scout groups can take advantage of our welcoming environment, while pre-schoolers can enjoy a shorter tour. Additionally, adult groups, including assisted living facilities and senior groups, can also book guided tours with us.
Museum admission is $2 per person for guided tours for groups. A ratio of one accompanying adult per six students is required for children ages seven years and younger, and a ratio of one adult per ten students is required for children ages eight and older. Guided tours are conducted by professionally trained volunteer docents as well as the Education Curator of the Berks History Center.
Payment can be made day of tour with cash, check or credit card. Groups will be charged only for the number of persons who are present for the tour.
For groups arriving by bus, please drop off directly in front of the museum on Centre Avenue. The bus will need to park further down the street. If arriving by car, street parking is available in front of the museum on Centre Avenue and behind the museum building on Second Street. Groups can also park in the lot behind the Henry Janssen Library located on Spring Street.
For persons requiring handicapped accessibility, park in the lot or on Second Street and enter the building via the side entrance located on Spring Street. The Education Curator will greet your group upon arrival.
