The Atlanta History Center offers multi-disciplinary and interactive guided tours for students of all ages that are educational and fun. Students are given the opportunity to handle historic objects from our collection in addition to touring our award-winning exhibitions, historic houses and gardens. Tours are designed to match the state social studies requirements.
NOTE: School Tour bookings for the 2018-2019 school year will not be available to reserve a date until Monday, July 23. Our first school tours will start on Tuesday, September 4.
If you would like to bring a group during the summer, we are only offering self-guided visits.
For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Title I schools receive free tours during December 2017, January and February 2018. Due to high demand and limited availability, there is a $50 deposit due at the time of booking your tour to reserve your date. This payment will only be processed if you cancel your tour.
The cost for all guided tours is $8 per student. Guided tours require one chaperone (admitted free) per 10 students. Admission for each additional chaperone is $8.
Full payment is required 3 weeks prior to your visit to guarantee your reservation for all tours. If booking less than 3 weeks in advance, full payment is due immediately.
Confirmation of day and time and Arrival Information will be sent via email. Please bring your confirmation with you on the day of your tour to ensure the group rate.
Your payment is not refundable if you cancel your school tour and do not reschedule. Payments are refunded only in the case of school closings.
There is a $25 administrative fee should you need to reschedule your tour. You must notify the Atlanta History Center at least 3 days in advance. With advance notice your payment can be applied to a new tour date, plus the administrative fee.
